History of "The Night Before Christmas"

New Yorker Clement Clark Moore's traditional Christmas poem, "The Night Before Christmas" is read on Christmas Eve in homes all around the country each year. Moore wrote his beloved Christmas poem in 1822 for his three daughters. Moore's Santa has been a major influence on the image of Santa Claus that all children wait for on Christmas Eve.

Many legends surround the existence of Santa. Santa Claus is believed to have been born in what is now modern-day Turkey. He traveled the country to help the poor. Santa came into American culture towards the end of the 18th century. The first life-sized Santa was seen in a Philadelphia shop in 1841. Familiar Santa images are now seen with stockings that are filled with toys and fruit. Moore's image of Santa Claus is responsible for the modern image as a "jolly old elf" with his round rotund tummy.
