This is the last day in my 5 day series: 5 Days of Christmas Books. I started with the 12 Days of Christmas. Then I covered The Polar Express, Frosty the Snowman, and A Christmas Carol. Today’s book is Twas the Night Before Christmas. This is one that sparks happy dreams in the heads of children everyone.
The Night Before Christmas is a treasured, fun story about a family settling down for the night on Christmas Eve and Saint Nicholas paying a visit to their house. It is alight with vivid imagery of the happenings of the night. Sights and sounds come alive in this favorite holiday story.
