“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with cheer, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.”
This well known Christmas poem shares the popular American Christmas tradition of a jolly, white bearded man bringing presents to good children on Christmas Eve. This tradition is shared throughout many cultures, whether it’s Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas or Kris Kringle, kids all over the world look forward to this night time visit.
Christmas is a time to be thankful for what we have and to remember and cherish those that we know and love. So this Christmas season, remember to be kind and helpful to others, use good manners, and listen to your parents. Santa and his elves are sure to notice and will land on your roof top this Christmas Eve. Although presents and stocking stuffers are exciting (and JM Cremps carries some of the best presents and gifts around), the best gift of all will be the smiles on the faces of those whom your kindness touches.
