As is our tradition, we present this charming image of Clement Clarke Moore’s original, handwritten poem, “A Visit From Saint Nicholas.” It was penned in 1822 as a gift to his children. Here is the full, easier to read version.

Enjoy Christmas Eve.

    Thanks! This brings back great memories. Our Dad used to read this to us every Christmas eve. Now I’m the family reader, and though I try, I can never be as animated as Dad.

    Christmas Eve Prayer

    Father God,

    In a small animal shelter, two young newlyweds came to take refuge. In candlelight, laying upon straw, the promised one stirred within a nervous young mother. How we wonder that your Son, a piece of you sent from heaven could reside in such humble beginnings. And yet we engage with this picture, with the expectancy, with the hardship and with the wonder. This is the eve that held such promise, the eve that would be remembered forever, the eve that changed everything. We remember this moment now and continue to wonder at your amazing plans, at your unfailing love, and at your amazing grace.

    Amen.
