DPF / Moore

This one’s for Dad, gone 23 years; but, I have his handwriting here on the front of this book, which makes him seem like he’s right here: “To Michele, from LT COL. Pizarro.” Happy holiday season to you, whatever your choice of holiday(s) may be.

from The Night Before Christmas / by Clement C. Moore (1779-1863)

‘Twas 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 Saint Nicholas soon would be there.
