Twas the Night . . .

Well, yes, Christmas is over. But that doesn't mean that I can't add in more Christmas-y things before the end of the year! Here are five things that you probably didn't know about the poem 'The Night Before Christmas'.

1. The writer, Clement Clarke Moore, tried to pretend that he didn't write this poem before eventually fessing up to doing just that. Nobody quite knows why.

2. 'The Night Before Christmas' was originally called 'A Visit from Saint Nicholas'.

3. The poem was first published in 1823.

4. The poem was released only two days before Christmas.

5. Mr. Moore was 41 years old when he wrote this historic and memorable poem.

Anyways, in addition to those facts, look at how the cover of the book has changed over time as well;

and, finally . . .

Again, isn't it interesting how the cover of a story can change overtime? This last one is from a year or two ago, and still, throughout this journey, I find it amazing that the story itself can remain untouched by time but still varies by trade and outwardly appearance. Cool, right?
