Are your stockings hung by the chimney with care?
The professional voice actors of the VO-BB.com set the stage for St. Nicholas with a dramatic, on-camera reading of "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
A Visit From St. Nicholas
"A Visit From St. Nicholas," also called "Twas The Night Before Christmas," is a treasured yuletide poem shared by families around the world on Christmas Eve. Although there have been a few changes to the wording of the poem over the years, for instance, "Just settled down for a long winter's nap," instead of "settling our brains..." the spirit of the tale remains the same.
First published anonymously in the Troy, New York Sentinel on December 23, 1823, the story was reprinted frequently thereafter with no name attached. Authorship was later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore (although a debate rages on) and the poem was included in an 1844 anthology of his works.
Regardless of who wrote this poem, I think the folks from DB Cooper's VO-BB did a smashing job! Participating narrators, in order of appearance, include:
