‘Twas the Night before Christmas

And all through the House

Not a Creature was stirring

Not even a Mouse

Clement C. Moore


A Visit from St Nicholas is one of my most favourite poems. It’s one of the few from which I can recite more than a line, and Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a reading of it. Nor without watching The Muppets’ Christmas Carol, but that’s another story.

What’s your favourite seasonal read?
