There, the first lady, donned in a red pantsuit, spread some holiday cheer. She read "The Night Before Christmas" to thousands of admirers both young and old.

Our patients were thrilled to receive a surprise visit from former first lady @MichelleObama! She joined Santa to read “The Night Before Christmas” and held a special Q&A. Questions included: “What’s your favorite thing to eat?” and “How many pushups can you do?” pic.twitter.com/tMYCXAOrMB— Children's Colorado (@ChildrensColo) December 14, 2018
The 54-year-old also answered questions from kids. One asked what the first lady would tell her younger self.
"Don't let fear guide you."
As she sat on stage with Santa Clause, Emma Jones, 14, asked the first lady what her favorite dance move is. Obama said she was unsure and asked Jones to show her her own favorite moves.
It was none other than "Orange Justice" from the popular video game, "Fortnite." The brave girl performed the dance for the mother of two.
Without hesitating, Obama got up and tried it out herself. At one point, she encouraged Mr. Claus to join in on the fun.
The attendees were shocked with the entire thing, to the extent that tissue was available for those whose emotions came through in tears.
Days ahead of the surprise appearance, Obama spoke to women at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Tuesday. She related her experience as a black student at Princeton and spoke about meeting her husband.

The first lady spoke with her audience as if she were one of them. In a friendly manner, she promoted her new bestselling book "Becoming."
Obama isn't only relatable to women, she can also share useful experiences with young men as proven on Tuesday. Before going to Detroit, the first lady also surprised students of Wayne State University.
