'Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung
by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas
soon would be there.
~ from The Night Before Christmas,
written by Clement C. Moore
This year is unusual for our family. Most years we are out of town on Christmas, so Santa comes to our house early. This year, however, we are home for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Like many other families, we will be setting out a few cookies (and eggnog!) for Santa tonight. How about you? Are you expecting St. Nicholas at your house?
