'Twas the Night before Christmas' is a well-known Christmas poem that was originally written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1822.

Legend says he wrote the poem on Christmas Eve during a sleigh ride home after buying a turkey for his family: his wife and six children.

The poem has become a traditional Christmas story that is a little hard to memorize!
