Twas the Night before Christmas…

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!






About Tamara Hoerner (1302 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
