BC: HO HO HO Merry Christmas
FC: Twas The Night Before Christmas! By: Peace-Love-Hope
1: Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the castle all the creatures were stirring OHH what a hassle!
2: Our Socks were hung on the mantle with love and tender care, In hopes that Santa would soon be there.
3: The Children anxious to awake, as the lay asleep in their beds.
4: Maw and Paw in fast asleep in their bed , while the merry music plays and fills the air.
5: I was barely asleep when i heard something clatter, I jumped out of bed to what was the matter.
6: I ran to the window i ran like a flash, Opened the curtains and heard a big bash!
7: The Moonlight Shown on the new-fallen snow, Gave the glow of mid-day to objects below.
8: When what to my amazement should appear, but a diminutive sleigh and eight tiny reindeer!
9: With a little old man so vigorous and expeditious, I knew in a split second it must be Santa.
10: More hurrid than hawks his coursers they came, And he whistled, and bellowed, and called them by name!
11: "Now Johnny! now Bob! Now Blue and Steve! On Cameron! On Caleb! On David and Billy!
12: To the head of the porch! To the top of the Wall! Now charge away! Charge away! Charge away all!"
13: As parch leaves that before the unrestrained typhoon fly, when they meet with an obstacle, ascend to the sky.
14: So up to the roof-top the coursers they flew, With a sleigh full of gifts and Santa too!
15: And in the blink of my little eye, i heard the roof, the tapping and grasping of each little hoof.
16: As i drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney my favorite man, Santa appeared!
17: He was clad all in hide, from hid head to his toe, And his clothes were all soiled with ashes and smoke.
18: A bundle of toys he had thrown on his back, And he looked like a vendor, just opening his pack.
19: His beautiful eyes, how they glittered so brightly! his dimples how merry! His cheeks rosy red, his nose like a cherry!
20: The end of the pipe he held so tightly in his mouth,And the soot circled his head like a halo!
21: He had a stocky face and a large round belly, that shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jello!
22: He was plump and round, a right jolly old elf, and i chuckled under my breath when i saw him, in spite of myself.
23: A wink of his twinkling eye and a twist of his head, right then and there i knew there was nothing i needed to fear.
24: He stayed silent, but went straight to the stockings to do his job.
25: Then he turned to the chimney quickly,, laying his finger on the top of his head, saying ho, ho, ho! and up the chimney he rose!
26: He jumped in his sleigh, to his team he whistled, and away they flew. They were gone as fast as a shooting star.
27: But I heard him holler as he flew out of sight , "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Great night!
