Last night was our last small group until January & for part of the activities of the evening, I had brought home some Christmas picture books from the library. Among them was the book ” ‘Twas the night before Christmas”. Through conversation, it came up that two of my girls had never heard the poem before! These are Sophomores in high school! Granted they grew up outside the United States, but still, “the night before Christmas”, isn’t that just a normal part of Christmas?! ?! It always amazes me when I find these gaps that are just normal everyday things in North America.
