1. ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clark Moore: “The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow;  Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.”
2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens: “Once upon a time–of all the good days in the year, on Christmas Eve–old Scrooge sat busy in his counting-house. It was cold, bleak, biting weather: foggy withal: and he could hear the people in the court outside, go wheezing up and down, beating their hands upon their breasts, and stamping their feet upon the pavement stones to warm them.”
3. Old Christmas from the Sketchbook of Washington Irving by Washington Irving: “It is a beautiful arrangement, also, derived from days of yore, that this festival, which commemorates the announcement of the religion of peace and love, has been made the season for gathering together of family connections, and drawing closer again those bands of kindred hearts which the cares and pleasures and sorrows of the world are continually operating to cast loose.”
4. Life & Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum: “Claus looked upon the immortals who thronged around him with fearless eyes and smiling lips.  He rode laughingly upon the shoulders of the merry Ryls; he mischievously pulled the gray beards of the low-browed Knooks;  he rested his curly head confidently upon the dainty bosom of the Fairy Queen herself.  And the Ryls loved the sound of his laughter; the Knooks loved his courage; the Fairies loved his innocence.”
5. The Children’s Book of Christmas Stories edited by Asa Don Dixon and Ada M. Skinner: “Out in the woods stood a nice little Fir-tree. The place he had was a very good one; the sun shone on him; as to fresh air, there was enough of that, and round him grew many large-sized comrades, pines as well as firs. But the little Fir wanted so very much to be a grown-up tree.”
