‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Okay so it’s really 5 nights before Christmas, but I wanted to share this book with you. I’ve long adored the famous poem that was printed anonymously back in 1823, and this version illustrated by Matt Tavares is my favorite.

Twas The Night

The black and white pencil drawings seem absolutely perfect — they are somehow magical, breathtaking and simple all at once.

St. Nicks Reindeer

It’s fascinating that this book’s text is shown exactly as it appeared in the original newspaper printing. I was surprised to see St. Nick actually calls his last two reindeer “Dunder and Blixem” instead of the “Donner and Blitzen” we commonly hear.

Filling the Stockings

We read this story as a family every Christmas eve and it’s truly magical.
