- 'T was the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring,-not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
- 'Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen, 'On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Dunder and Blixem; 'To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! 'Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!'
- But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight - Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
