Twas The Night Before Christmas – read by celebrities

Well, it’s seems that it’s Christmas again. So, a very Merry Christmas and a happy New
Year. 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 sugar-plums danced in their
heads; And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see, you know, 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 a 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, on, Donner 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 slung on his back,
And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack His eyes — how they twinkled! 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 on 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 bowl full
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
