Go ahead read this aloud Christmas Eve to someone or someones It's not fake news; my mom swore every word is true and I never knew her to tell a lieTwas the night before Christmas when all through the houseNot a creature was stirring not even a mouseThe stockings were hung by the chimney with careIn hopes that St Nicholas soon would be thereThe children were nestled all snug in their bedsWhile visions of sugar plums danced in their headsAnd mamma in her ‘kerchief and I in my capHad just settled our brains for a long winter’s napWhen out on the lawn there arose such a clatterI sprang from the bed to see what was the matterAway to the window I flew like a flashTore open the shutters and threw up the sashThe moon on the breast of the new fallen snowGave the lustre of mid day to objects belowWhen what to my wondering eyes should appearBut a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeerWith a little old driver so lively and uickI knew in a moment it must be St NickMore rapid than eagles his coursers they cameAnd he whistled and shouted and called them by nameNow Dasher now Dancer now Prancer and VixenOn Comet On Cupid on Donner and BlitzenTo the top of the porch to the top of the wallNow dash away Dash away Dash away allAs dry leaves that before the wild hurricane flyWhen they meet with an obstacle mount to the skySo up to the house top the coursers they flewWith the sleigh full of Toys and St Nicholas tooAnd then in a twinkling I heard on the roofThe prancing and pawing of each little hoofAs I drew in my head and was turning aroundDown the chimney St Nicholas came with a boundHe was dressed all in fur from his head to his footAnd his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and sootA bundle of Toys he had flung on his backAnd he looked like a peddler just opening his packHis eyes how they twinkled his dimples how merryHis cheeks were like roses his nose like a cherryHis droll little mouth was drawn up like a bowAnd the beard of his chin was as white as the snowThe stump of a pipe he held tight in his teethAnd the smoke it encircled his head like a wreathHe had a broad face and a little round bellyThat shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jellyHe was chubby and plump a right jolly old elfAnd I laughed when I saw him in spite of myselfA wink of his eye and a twist of his headSoon gave me to know I had nothing to dreadHe spoke not a word but went straight to his workAnd filled all the stockings then turned with a jerkAnd laying his finger aside of his noseAnd giving a nod up the chimney he roseHe sprang to his sleigh to his team gave a whistleAnd away they all flew like the down of a thistleBut I heard him exclaim ‘ere he drove out of sightHappy Christmas to all and to all a good night

This book is featured on today's Shabby Sunday is one of my most treasured Christmas books to read over the holiday season particularly on Christmas Eve I believe most people already know the classic poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Clement C Moore and I couldn’t tell you how many different editions we have of this one but what makes this edition so special to me are the classic vintage illustrations by Leonard Weisgard that take me back in time to my childhood I think I cherish this version than my kids do for that reason aloneMy edition is the 1983 printing by Grosset Dunlap The cover is in bad shape and I’ve had to hot glue the pages back in already The pages however are in near perfect condition They’re crisp and clean for their age and the illustrations are still as vivid as ever5
