FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Hundreds of kids celebrated Christmas this weekend.

Santa stopped by Erin's House for Grieving Kids during their holiday party Sunday.

He was handing out gifts to all the kids.

They then went and made ornaments, wreaths and picture frames.

Erin's House has the party every year because holidays can be hard for kids who lost a loved one.

"We do this for them to just have an extra special day for them to come together as a family. A lot of times this might be their first holiday without their loved one, so being able to have some good memories they are able to share," said Cassie Sheely, Erin's House program specialist.

About 400 kids were expected at Sunday's party.
