The night before Christmas

When I was in New Zealand last Christmas I found this old book


which given to me by my Nanna.  I see that the copyright was 1953, (I wasn’t born then) and I don’t remember receiving the book but I do remember that we always used to read it on Christmas Eve.


  1. This poem is one of my favorite memories, and I've also read it innumerable times to my children and grandson. Merry Christmas!

  2. What a wonderful memory. Our childhood copy of The Night Before Christmas had a fuzzy red Santa which we used to like to rub. After a number of years and a number of readings, we had worn off some of the fuzzy red Santa suit !

    Have a Merry Christmas !

  3. What a wonderful treasure! You of course must sit and read this tonight before going to bed! Hope Santa is good to you! Merry Christmas!

  4. We read it too! Every Christmas Eve - granted our copy is not as nice as yours.
    Have a wonderful Christmas
