From time to time something of interest catches my attention in the Press Telegram's column entitled "This Day In History" ...
Well, this morning was no exception and I liked it so much I wanted to share it with you.
On this day in history (December 23rd) in the year 1823, the poem "Account of a visit From St. Nicholas" was published anonymously in the Troy (N.Y.) Sentinel; more popularly known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas," and was later attributed to Clement C. Moore.
So many traditions have been started by this one simple poem that it started me thinking about all of the holiday traditions we have that are woven into the fabric of our seasonal celebrations.
I hope you can take a moment to savor and enjoy the special holiday traditions you have and continue their legacy by building new memories for this holiday season of 2011.
