Nearly everyone knows that most famous of Christmas poems, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, by Clement Clarke Moore (1779 - 1863).  Written in 1822, it's also known as A Visit from St. Nicholas.  Did you know that many poems have been written for Christmas?  Here's one I like that's new to me:

Christmas is a soft warm glow
Children playing in the snow
Decorations on the tree
Put on there by Mom and me
Candy canes red and white
A letter to Santa I did write
Sugar cookies in a row
Christmas is a soft warm glow.

I don't know who wrote this poem, but you can find this one and more written for children by going to this Christmas Poem website, (click here).  This website also has poems for lovers, funny poemsreligious poems, and more.

One of the things I enjoy doing on Christmas Eve is reading Christmas poetry.  What do you enjoy doing on Christmas Eve?
