I have passed on my love of the story 'The night before Christmas to my one and only son Kai. Who does enjoy the story but as now being 13years old is a bit old for the story. But I believe in my heart that he will caring that story on to his children one day.. I hope you enjoyed my little bit of Christmas cheer. And traditions. I hope in all of your lives across the world, you too will continue those wonderful childhood traditions and keep the safe. Your lovely friend Wendy..
"Twas The Night Before Christmas" written Dec 23, 1823.
'Twas the night before Christmas when all thro the house.
Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.
And Mama 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 the 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 mid-day to objects below.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a minature sleigh and eight tiny rein-deer,
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 call'd them by named.
"Now!Dasher now!Dancer now! Prancer and Vixen,
"On!Comet on! Cupid on!Dunder and Blixem;
"To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
"Now dash away!dash away!dash away all!"
As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly
When they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top 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 dress'd all in fur from his head to his foot
And his clothes were all tarnish'd with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys was flung on his back
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 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 laugh'd like a bowl full of jelly;
He was chubby and plump a right jolly old elf
And I laugh'd 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 fill'd all the stockings then turn'd with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose
And giving a nod up the chimney he rose
He sprung 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-
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
