What's more wholesome than Mister Rogers? Newborn babies dressed up as Mister Rogers, of course. Yes, this is a real thing, and your heart is about to grow three sizes.
For Cardigan Day — a Pittsburgh-centric celebration of World Kindness Day — fans of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood dress up in the namesake host's iconic red cardigan and tie. Fred Rogers made it his life's mission to spread kindness, and his red cardigan is symbolic of his gentle, compassionate personality.
And so babies born on Cardigan Day at West Penn Hospital, in Pittsburgh, were given an adorable gift. Hospital staff dressed the newborns in red cardigans and ties to celebrate their hometown hero and send them off into the neighborhood with love and kindness.
IT IS RAINING ON MY FACE.
Look at these little ones! Wearing tiny cardigans and ties! These freshly baked buns have been given a great welcome to the world, with the gift of kindness. Here's hoping their generation grows up to experience Mister Rogers' lessons as well!
Oh yes, there's video.
I cannot deal. I TRULY CANNOT. Six newborns dressed up in their Mister Rogers' finest? This is absolutely the kind of content I want to see on all of my timelines. This needs to be on every Facebook wall, every Twitter feed, on the cover of every newspaper. Click on over to WTAE for the adorable footage.
