The Night Before Christmas

by Clement C. Moore

 

“Twas the night before Christmas,

When all through the house

Not a creature was stirring,

Not even a mouse;”



In 1822, a New York clergyman named Clement Clarke Moore wrote a special story for his children. He wrote his story in the form of a poem and called it ‘A Visit From St Nicholas’. Once he’d finished writing it he decided to have it published anonymously in a New York newspaper.

 

The poem became extremely popular and has since been renamed ‘The Night Before Christmas’. It’s a wonderfully classic story which never fails to ignite that Christmas spirit.
