“Twas the Night Before Christmas”
Posted by purplemary54 on December 24, 2014
Yeah, this isn’t exactly a Christmas “song,” but it is partially sung and there’s music, so I’m going with it.
Clement Moore’s poem was actually titled “A Visit from Saint Nicholas,” but I think more people use the colloquial title of the first line these days. Either way, this is one of those fond childhood memories that I can’t bring myself to disdain, even though it’s pretty corny–and this version makes it kind of sappy to boot. It’s still a lovely little narrative. And a nice thought for tonight. And given yesterday’s events, I could use some nice sappy corny thoughts. (I’ll get into it after the holidays.)
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!
