    Merry Christmas to you and yours. I think my favorite Christmas cartoon growing up was “Twas the Night before Christmas.” This one was the cartoon where Santa had decided to skip a town because a mouses son sent him a letter saying he didn’t believe. I just found it on youtube so looks like I get to see it again this year…

    • Hi Jon, I remember that cartoon and it was fun to watch. I still get a kick out of all those old holiday movies even today. Happy Holidays to you and yours. 🙂

  • This was always one of my favorite poems as a kid. When it was read to me before bedtime on Christmas Eve, it always made falling asleep that much more difficult!

    • Hi Jeri, LOL… me too. Nevertheless it was such an important part of it all wasn’t it? The very best of Holiday wishes to you my friend. 🙂

  • Thanks for the memories with that poem and I remember my grandmother reading it to us. Happy holidays to you Susan

    • Hi Susan, What a lovely memory that must be for you. Here is wishing the very best of Holidays. 🙂
