Night Before Christmas Game by Lisa Aschenbrenner  

Give the guests a blank piece of paper and the holiday book.  See how well they remember The Night Before Christmas. I only picked items you can see by looking in the book since some may not have the items to display. I have listed some of the possible answers as well.   

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house  
Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, 
In hopes that St. Nicholas would soon be there.
The children were nestled all snug in there beds, 
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; 
And Mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap - 

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, 
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. 
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 lustre of midday to objects below: 
When what to my wondering eyes should appear 
but a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer,  

With a little old driver so lively and quick, 
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, 
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen
On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Doner and Blitzen
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! 
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!” 

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, 
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky
So up to the housetop the coursers they flew, 
with a sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas, too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof  
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. 
As I drew in my head and was turning around,
” Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound: 

He was dressed all in fur from his head to his foot, 
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. 
A bundle of toys he had lung on his back, 
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. 

His eyes how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! 
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry; 
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,  
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, 
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath
He had a broad face and a little round belly 
That shook, when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump - a right jolly old elf
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; 
A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head, 
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. 

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, 
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk, 
And laying his finger aside of his nose, 
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose. 

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, 
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. 
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight, 
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”   By Clement C. Moore
