The Night Before Christmas

At my house, we have over 30 Christmas stories and it is a tradition to try and read them all each December.  Our favorite by far is Clement Moore's The Night Before Christmas, which we have about five copies of.  And on Christmas Eve each year, we read the 1960 edition illustrated by Catherine Barnes.  I love the way the words of the poem flow and the illustrations really capture the magic children feel around the holidays.  Sometimes its important to read the same story each year just because it is a great tradition.  Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!
