This beautiful and delightful poem was written in 1823 by Clement Clarke Moore, originally for his children and has become a classic Christmas tradition. For a bit more information, here is a short video from Reading Through History, giving us the origin for this light hearted look at Christmas:

My oldest son received a copy of this book for his first Christmas. Since then it became a tradition to read it every year on Christmas Eve. Beginning this year, I’d like to add to that tradition, by including all of you and posting a reading of it here on my blog. This year I have a reading done by Lorne Greene. Enjoy!
