‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (a modern retelling)

Christmas Tree

Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through our house
the only creature left stirring was me with my mouse.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

While I came up with these clever ad-libs.

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”
