A Visit from St. Nicholas

On Christmas Eve 1822, Clement C. Moore's house is not as quiet as a mouse—in fact, everyone is stirring! Three children await the arrival of St. Nicholas, and Mother and Father arise thinking they hear intruders. Cousin Harriet enlists the children to copy the poem their father has just written for them, which she hopes to have published for all young people to enjoy. But Father, a distinguished professor fears becoming known as a poet for children - burns the poem so it can never leave the house. At first heartbroken, the children unite to save the poem by improvising it through a riotous enactment. How they convince their father that his verses should be shared with children everywhere brings about the hilarious, happy ending.
