The Night Before Christmas

The Night Before Christmas is a poem written by Clement Clarke Moore and was first published in 1823, and is still remembered today.

The poem writes about what happens the night before Christmas. The whole house was asleep but the owner was awoken by the visit of Santa Claus to his home. This poem painted Santa Claus as a jolly old man on a sleigh pulled by 8 reindeer, dressed in red and jumping down through the chimney to leave gifts. In a way Clement Moore painted the modern image of Santa Claus. The illustrations in this book were by Mary Engelbreit and are rich in detail.

Enjoy the Christmas Eve!
