FC: The Eve Before Christmas | The True "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" Story | Written and Illustrated by Krii Hamblin Tuttle

1: ©2011, Krii Hamblin Tuttle | This book is dedicated to: My thirteen children who ask for this story before we open any gifts; to every parent who would like to tell the REAL night before Christmas story effortlessly; and to my husband who encourages me in every good thing.

3: 'Twas the eve before Christmas and all through the town, Mary and Joseph sought shelter, yet none could be found.

4: They inquired within, with growing despair, For Mary was large with a child to bear.

5: To the couple so weary, an inn-keeper took pity --There was a manger available in the traveler-laden city.

7: Mary and Joseph found refuge among cows and sheep, And settled down quickly for labor, not sleep.

8: When out in the fields there appeared in the night, An angelic vision to the shepherds' great fright!

9: In awe they trembled, they were sore afraid, But an angel spoke kindly and pretty much said,

10: “Fear not, I bring you good tidings, great joy; The Savior's been born in the form of a boy! "And there is a sign, it's given unto you – So you can find Him, before the night's through.

13: He'll be found in a manger, in swaddling clothes, His mother beside Him, her face all aglow.”

14: And suddenly a multitude of heavenly beings, Came to praise God and in chorus began singing,

15: "Glory to God in the Highest," and then, “On this earth peace, and good will towards men.”

16: As the angels returned to their heavens abode, The shepherds sought after all they'd been told.

17: To Bethlehem they traveled with hastening speed, Finding the Babe in a manger, as the angel decreed.

18: More rapid than eagles they ran to pass on The things they'd just witnessed before the sun dawned.

19: When Mary looked down towards her newborn with wonder, She absorbed all these things, in her heart she did ponder.

20: And all they that heard what the shepherds expressed, Marveled with reverence at the Miracle professed.

21: Wise men came from lands distant and far, Finding the Child to worship, with the help of a star.

22: They were warned in a dream after leaving the manger, That King Herod's scheme for the infant was danger.

23: With those divine promptings at work on their hearts, Their route home altered, as they prepared to depart.

24: Now, there was a man, Simeon, who was just and devout, He worked in the temple and had faith, not a doubt.

25: For a promise was given; he would not see death, Until he saw Christ, in body and breath.

26: When he held Mary's infant, in his warm embrace, He beheld his salvation, the Lord's loving grace.

27: Simeon blessed them and said, as he turned to Christ's mother, This Child is set for the fall, rising again as no other.

28: And there was one, Anna, An aged prophetess, Who walked in at that instant, And the Spirit impressed. This was the Christ child, He would pay the debt:

29: With His own blood,

30: As we repent with regret.

31: And even those souls that will die uncorrected, Shall meet body with spirit; they'll be resurrected.

32: Thus, as all of our lives are blessed by this event, Let us praise our Lord also with hearts so intent | More than historical was this birth, in the town of Bethlehem, It means salvation to all who will come unto Him.

33: So as we celebrate His birth, Let's remember this phrase, “Peace on earth to all men, our Lord we will praise."
