A Christmas visit from…

 ‘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​ ​soon​ ​would​ ​be​ ​there.  The​ ​children​ ​were​ ​nestled​ ​all​ ​snug​ ​in​ ​their​ ​beds,  While​ ​visions​ ​of​ ​sugar​ ​plums​ ​danced​ ​in​ ​their​ ​heads.
