“A Visit from St. Nicholas”, more commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas”, is a poem attributed to Clement Clarke Moore. Some now believe it was written by Henry Livingston Jr.

On Christmas Eve night, while his wife and children sleep, a father wake up because of noises outside his house. He looks through the window and he sees Santa Claus (St. Nicholas) in his flying sleigh pulled by eight reindeer arriving to the roof of his house. Santa enters the house through the chimney, carrying a sack full of toys.

The father follows Santa around the house. He witness Santa doing his job and how he leaves saying “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night”.
