End of Christmas in July
Twas The Night Before Christmas A Visit from St. Nicholas [Kindle Edition] - Clement C. Moore,Jessie Willcox Smith

I had found this poem and thought it would be good to have on hand for the girls to read as it had been written (along with the notes on the author and how he had written the poem for his children). I think it will make its way into the curriculum for school this year. What a nice way to end July.

The Night Before Christmas
The Night Before Christmas - Jan Brett,Clement C. Moore Seriously the cutest book out there for young and old alike. I have read this book since I was a kid and it always makes me smile. This version has illustrations in it that I think will definitely keep any and all kids entranced with it.

My family used to read this book the night before Christmas. We also used to watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas before bed too. A great book to get you in the holiday mood!

Twas the Night Before Christmas A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement C. Moore
Twas the Night before Christmas A Visit from St. Nicholas (Illustrated) - Clement C. Moore,Jessie Willcox Smith
Twas the Night Before Christmas A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement C. Moore is a read aloud poem that still charms the heart after all these years. It was a pleasure to enjoy as a Christmas tradition. Although it was written in 1912, I highly recommend reading this as a family ritual.
 
"When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the windows I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters & threw up the sash."
 
I gave this classic five stars.

The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore
The Night Before Christmas - Clement C. Moore

On Christmas Eve, my partner and I decided to marathon a whole bunch of Christmas movies and specials. Some of which I have seen but she hasn't and some of which she has seen but I haven't. Among the ones she hasn't seen is the Rankin and Bass special of Twas the Night Before Christmas. However, before she watched that, I wanted her to read the original poem since she hasn't read it in a while either. 

 

And that's where this precious darling of a book came in! I've had this book for YEARS now! I read it every Christmas Eve and I wanted to share it with my best mate! So we read it together whilst the great LeVar Burton read it out loud! (We're Reading Rainbow fans as well~) It was such a lovely experience. I loved reading along and experiencing this book again but in a new way. 

 

The poem itself is short but lovely. It helped create a lot of what we know today about Christmas and Santa Claus. I highly recommend you check this poem out. And then watch the Rankin and Bass Christmas Special of it because that, too, is precious!

 

Have yourself a wonderful Christmas, everyone!
