Description

It is the night before Christmas. Every tree in the little Christmas tree lot has been sold--except one. The owner and his child lock up, then trudge through the snow to their house nearby; the family settles in for a "long winter's nap" . . . and the familiar verse about the most exciting night of the year begins. In this edition of "A Visit from St. Nicholas"--word for word the original verse by Clement C. Moore--the gifts of Christmas are shared with everyone, right down to the last little tree left alone in the snow-filled lot on Christmas Eve.
