When I was three or four, I loved "The Night Before Christmas." I made my parents read it to me over and over and over -- I had it in this wonderful extra-big book with amazing pictures. They read it to me so often, I memorized it. The whole thing. Word for word. My parents used to get me to recite it for their friends -- it was my first party trick. I still remember the first couple stanzas, though I won't recite them for you here. I'll just give you the very end, with my warmest compliments of the season:

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

  1. That is the most beautiful picture. Reminds me exactly of Christmas where I used to live, right down to the pine-surrounded lake in the moonlight!

    Hope it was a great Christmas!


Agree or disagree? That is the question...
