“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.
