It Was The Night Before Christmas (Hubpages Version)

Updated on January 31, 2016

It was the night before Christmas here on Hubpages you see, some hubbers are franticly trying to publish one more hub, so they can spend Christmas day with the ones they love. And many hubbers are hanging out at the Learning Center, just singing Christmas songs all night long, and some are toasting marshmallows by the fire side.

And outside the snow is still falling so heavy has we all wonder how Hubpage Santa will see through it all, we have all hung our stockings by the fireplace, some are so fancy they even have lace. We hope Hubpage Santa will fill them to the brim, with all of the good things that only he can.

 But before we all know  time has slipped away, and the clock has struck midnight, it is now Christmas day. And after the last chime has rung, we hear from afar  what sounded like sleigh bells  and reindeer chatter, could it be Hubpage Santa ! And with a clang and a bang and bump, and  reindeer hoofs that go a thump, Santa safely brings the sleigh to a stop, right on Hubpages  roof top.

 And we hear a jolly laughter coming down the stairs, it’s Hubpage Santa he’s here, he’s here! He tell all us hubbers to close our  eyes while he fill our stockings with his surprise. And in a flash he off again with  sleigh bells  ringing and reindeers riding the wind, has we hear him say Enjoy all the ideas and write, write, write. And to our delight when we open our eyes our stocking are filled with idea after idea, enough to write new hubs throughout the New Year .

And with that we all held hands and sang one last song, about peace on earth and good will to all mankind, like only hubbers can at Christmas time. And then we all went to sleep for the night, slowly drifting into sweet dreams that last through the night. And tomorrow after you have open all your gifts and had your Christmas dinner please remember this, we the hubber are the lucky ones, for we have Hubpages the greatest place to write, and with that my friends I will say, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night !

      hi kASH,

      one of my dogs is sat on my knee reading this with me, I'm not sure she understood it all, I tried my best to explain.

      Nice hub, buddy, your last Xmas hub inspired my Deck of Cards hub, but nothing so far.

      CHristmas will soon be here, I hope Santa brings me the secret of Hubs so I know what I'm doing here!

      with respect

      Tony

      Amy,If you found someone that nedeed it to complete a bed you might get as much as fifty dollars. No dealer that I am aware of would bother putting it in stock owing to the extremely limited market. You should go to Google Images and search “Simmons bed spring”. One or more might turn up and might have some dollar information connected. The spring is probably 60-80 years old and made so well that it is still useful. You can put a zippered cover over it for cleanliness and use it as a box spring.Good Luck,Marshall
