“The Night before Christmas” also known by the name of “A Visit from St Nicholas” was written by Clement Moore on the eve of Christmas for his family in 1822 without any intention of publishing it. A friend of Clement Moore heard about this poem from his children and made a copy of the poem to add it to her collection. She then gave it to an editor and the poem was published on the 23rd of December in 1823.

A person’s a person no matter how small.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.
From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.
If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.
I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent.
And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
