"A Visit from St. Nicholas", also known as "The Night Before Christmas" and "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" from its first line, is a poem first published anonymously in 1823 and generally attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, although the claim has also been made that it was written by Henry Livingston, Jr.
The poem, which has been called "arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American", is largely responsible for some of the conceptions of Santa Claus from the mid-nineteenth century to today. Prior to the poem, American ideas about St. Nicholas and other Christmastide visitors varied considerably
This is the classic version, credited to Clement Clarke Moore, with some original illustrations and others hand added, according to the editor's childhood memories. Because of the dating of some of the language, these illustrations are crucial for children to remember and understand the poem. Time to share with your children, what is soldered in your memory through songs, stories, and television specials!
