Happy Eve, sugar-plums!
If you visit here (the website, not the downtown location where this picture was taken) on Christmas Day you can hear a short story which turned into a not-so-short half hour recording about a Hollywood holiday twenty-eight years ago.
In the meantime something suitable for the children by Clement Clarke Moore (because the one I’ll be reading you tomorrow is most certainly not).
The image of A Visit from St. Nicholas in the author’s hand is courtesy of the New-York Historical Society.
And if you’re wondering it’s Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen. Rudolph the Red-Nosed was a creation of Robert L. May in 1939.
