The Night Before Christmas

Part 1 . . . Legend says Clement Clarke Moore wrote the poem The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve in 1822 during a sleigh ride home from Greenwich Village after buying a turkey for his family. Moore read the poem to his wife and six children the night he wrote it, and supposedly thought no more about it but a family friend heard about it and submitted the poem to the Sentinel, a newspaper in upstate New York, which published it anonymously the following Christmas on December 23, 1823 and people have been telling this imaginary tale ever since.<br /><br />

Part 2 . . . Clement Clarke Moore was a Christian and he and I would like to share the real story of Christmas with you, too. It was written about 2,000 years ago by Dr. Luke, one of Jesus disciples.
