Description: It's the night before Christmas. Shops are closed and the snowy streets are quiet. Every tree in the little Christmas tree lot has been sold -- except one. The owner and his child lock up and trudge through the snow to their house nearby; the family settles in for their "long winter's nap" ... and the familiar verse about the most exciting night of the year begins, as delightful today as it was in 1848, when it was first published.

Max Grover takes a fresh look at this beloved poem and brings us a working family whose visit from Santa has a special and surprising conclusion. In this edition of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" -- word for word the original verse by Clement C. Moore -- the gifts of Christmas are shared with everyone.

After dinner on December 24, 1822, Clement C. Moore gave his six children a present. The poem that he read about Santa with a sleigh full of toys and eight tiny reindeer with fanciful names was the invention of Moore, a professor of Oriental and Greek literature at the General Theological Seminary in New York. This imaginative gift from a devoted father to his children was destined to become the most famous and beloved of all American Christmas poems.
