Christmas Eve

”Twas the night before Christmas                                                                              When all through the house,                                                                                       Not a creature was stirring,                                                                                             Not even a mouse…”


These are the first few lines of a popular poem that an American professor,Clement Moore wrote for his children in 1882. It has been popular every since. The poem goes on to tell about the stockings by the chimney about the children who are sleeping in their beds. It tells about St. Nicholas who comes in his sleigh full of toys with eight reindeer. On the roof of the house he gets out of his sleigh and climbs dow the chimney. He quickly fills the stockings with toys for the children. At the end of the poem St. Nicholas drives off and says,   ”Happy Christmas to all,and to all a good night!”
