Twas the night before Christmas

 

Santa Claus

Christmas Eve is a time when familes, friends and children come together with anticipation of gifts and delights that will be had the following morning. Laying awaken in bed, children listen for the gentle sound of hoofs on the roof and maybe, just maybe this time, a glimpse of Santa Claus himself.

With cookies and milk layed out on the coffee table for good old Saint Nick, it’s the perfect time to read the poem “T’was the Night before Christmas” by Clement Moore.

William Goldstein created a video version of Moore’s poem set to Orchestra and Chorus with a Narrator.
