Advent Review Day 24: The Night Before Christmas By Clement C Moore

ISBN: 9780007133987

Published By Harper Collins

Everyone knows the start of this poem, mice not stirring and all that, but I wonder how many people have read it all the way through? It is definitely one of those poems which works best if read aloud. It starts with the calm and hush of Christmas Eve as everyone is falling asleep. Soon, our unnamed narrator is woken by the arrival of Santa Claus, and his meeting with the jolly fellow dressed in red is charming.

This is definitely one for Christmas Eve with a nice cup of hot chocolate before you head upstairs to bed.

Good night, sleep well, and I hope Santa brings you many literary presents!
