Description
Illustrated with period engravings and drawings, Martin Gardner's knowledgeable treasury traces the origins of Clement Moore's 1822 poem "The Night Before Christmas" (properly, "A Visit from Saint Nicholas") and its legacy as an essential, founding part of America's Christmas celebration. Gardner recounts the history of the poem and its rise to fame, and in its wake, imitations, parodies, and sequels, including a series of hilarious specimens all titled "The Night After Christmas." Here too is the only significant addition to the Santa Claus legend since Moore's poem, Robert Lewis May's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
