‘Twas the Night Before Christmas from Music Box

If we reflect back on all the Christmases of past years, there are always some fond memories that make us sentimental and emotional. It could be baking cookies with grandma, watching a holiday movie with our family, playing games with our friends, building snowmen with our siblings, or reading a holiday-inspired storybook that embraced the magic of the season. We had lots of timeless Christmas storybooks growing up, but there were several that were my favorite… you know… the ones that you could read over and over and never tire of it… the ones that sparked your imagination and allowed you to visualize and conceptualize the story in your own way. One of those stories was Twas the Night Before Christmas!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

As you can imagine, there are many versions of this story that have been printed over the years. Each one is endearing, each one is unique in its own way. But, some are created with special options like the ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Stories from the Music Box. This special rendering of the story is even more magical; it’s endowed with a music box that plays Deck the Hall. What a perfect song to usher in the holiday spirit.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Secret code: chimney. The sturdy storybook is large, measuring approximately 24.5 x 28.5 cm (9¾ x 11¼). It looks like a gift box storybook with festive colors and images and a wind-and-play dial. As children turn the pages, they are serenaded by the melodic holiday tune. Each page shares part of this rhyming poem in readable portions. And the illustrations are whimsical, jolly, and colorful and will captivate a child’s imagination. When kids read the poem, they can take in the scenery on the page and notice the characters and holiday-inspired backgrounds. Kids are quite perceptive and will compare the words to the image.

The last page shares insight into the origin of the song Deck the Hall and the poem Twas the Night Before Christmas. It was written in the early 1800s and continues to be one of the most beloved poems to read around during the holiday season.
