"'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;
The Children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danc'd in their heads..."

Seriously...did you know that "they" don't really know 
who wrote this iconic poem???
Quite honestly, I never really thought about who wrote it...
and I'm not sure that I ever saw an author attributed...
Never the is a time honored tradition!
