The story the night before christmas with pictures
The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. MooreThis poem first appeared in a newspaper in Troy, New York, USA, on December 23, 1823, as A Visit From St. Nicholas. No one claimed authorship until 13 years later. Clement Clarke Moore, a professor and poet, said that he wrote the piece for his children. Unbeknownst to him, his housekeeper had sent it to the newspaper to be published. However, the family of Henry Livingston Jr. contended that their father had been reciting “A Visit from St. Nicholas” for 15 years prior to publication. Regardless of the true author, the poem is now a Christmas classic.
The Night Before Christmas (Rabbit Ears)
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugarplums danced in their heads. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name. On, Comet! As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, when they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky.
This classic Christmas story depicts a surprising encounter with Santa on the night before Christmas. Read about 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

All rights reserved. A mid the many celebrations last Christmas Eve, in various places by different persons, there was one, in New York City, not like any other anywhere. A company of men, women, and children went together just after the evening service in their church, and, standing around the tomb of the author of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," recited together the words of the poem which we all know so well and love so dearly. Clement C. Moore, who wrote the poem, never expected that he would be remembered by it.
