18th Day Of Blogmas: Favourite Christmas Rhyme

Hello and thank you for checking out my 18th Blogmas post! It's been tough keeping up with it but all in all I've enjoyed it up to now, I'm sure that I'll review the Big Blogmas Project 2014 once I've finished in the New Year but for now that's all I can say about my opinion on the whole thing. 

This is only going to be a short post because it's just a quick mention of my favourite Christmas rhyme. I love poetry anyway, in particular Robert Frosts works and I believe he does actually have a Christmas poem but for the festive period I prefer something more traditional; Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

It's a classic and I have vivid memories of my mum reciting it to me as a child and I know that my little sister is told the same one. Seriously, she can recite the whole poem and my sister is well on her way to being able to do the same. 

If you want to have a quick read of the whole poem, this site includes some background information, an audio version and the poem itself. 

What's your favourite?
