First published anonymously in 1823, ''Twas The Night Before Christmas' has played a vital role in the tradition of Christmas. The jolly, red-cheeked, gift-bearing Santa Claus that we know (and love) today originates from Clement Clarke Moore's poem. He originally wrote it to share only with his own children on Christmas Eve. This jovial poem is wonderful for all fans of Santa Claus and the presents he delivers, young or old! Clement Clarke Moore (1779-1863) was an American writer, teacher, and poet. A highly religious man, he attended Columbia University and went on to write about a variety of subjects, including poetry, historical biographies, and translations from French. His most notable work was certainly 'A Visit From St Nicholas' which was originally written as a Christmas Eve gift to his children, and quickly gained fame, being known today as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.'

The Night before Christmas: A Childrens Christmas Poem about the Birth of Jesus might sound familiar and yet new and fresh at the same time. This poem tells the story from the Bible about the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ, and uses rhythm and rhyme in ways that draw their inspiration from Clement Clark Moores familiar telling of the Christmas Eve visit from St. Nicholas. Pairing eye-catching illustrations with the scenes in this beloved story brings to life the enduring Biblical account of Mary and Josephs journey to Bethlehem, the birth of the Christ Child, the announcement by the angels, the shepherds visit to the stable, and the call to tell the story to others. The reading of this keepsake book is fast becoming a yearly family tradition in many homes on Christmas Eve: And just before dawn, in the stable that morn, the Messiah, the Savior, the Redeemer was born.
