Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
I am going to bed extra early tonight and I will do my best to sleep if the excitement of tomorrow doesn’t get to me first! I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas Eve.
