I’m going to read ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore and this
particular version is illustrated by the exquisite Mary Englebreit…’Twas the
night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney
with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there. The children were
nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugarplums danced in their
heads; and Mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap had just settled down for a long
winter’s nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my
bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open
the shutters, and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen
snow, gave the lustre of midday to objects below, when what to my wondering
eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer. With a
little old driver so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More
rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled, and shouted, and called
them by name: Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On,
Donder and Blitzen!To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash
away! Dash away, dash away all! As dry leaves that before the wild
hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky; so up to the
housetop the coursers they flew, with the sleigh full of toys and St. Nicholas too.
And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, the Prancing and pawing of each
little hoof. As I drew in my head and was turning around, down the chimney St.
Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, and his
clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys he had flung on
his back, and he looked like a peddler opening his pack. His eyes how they
twinkle! His dimples, how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a
cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the beard of his chin
was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the
smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath; he had a broad face and a little
round belly that shook, when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, and I laughed when I saw him in
spite of myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head soon gave me to know I
had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled
all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his
nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, and away they all flew like
the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight… MERRY
CHRISTMAS to all, and to all a good night! ~~Thanks so much for listening, everyone…(check out my other videos)
