A fun and lighthearted parody on a very famous poem that everyone knows, that has been passed around for awhile.
Original was written by Clement Clarke Moore (1779 - 1863) wrote the poem Twas the night before Christmas also called "A Visit from St. Nicholas" in 1822.
Twas the week before Christmas when all through the house
A draft there was blowing, freezing even the mouse
The Stockings were hung by the chimney and blowing in air
That blew through the windows as if they were not there
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
Because the chill in the room would have frozen their heads
And mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap
Shivered and shook along with the cat
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
Oh joy, it was the men with the ladders
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a pick up truck loaded with windows and gear.
With a little old driver so lively and quick
I knew in a moment if must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his installers they came
And they flashed to each window and frame.
Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall
Get every window installed, install them all!
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the installer they flew,
With dozens of windows so shiny and new.
And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof
The sounds of the boss saying great job and here is the proof
The house is now cozy and warm
With all windows installed showing beauty and charm.
He sprang to his truck, to his team gave a whistle
And away they flew like the down of a thistle
But I heard him exclaim ‘ere he drove out of sight’
Enjoy your new windows, Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.
