克來門特‧摩爾 (Clement Moore) 被認為是在18221224日完成聖尼古拉斯的拜訪 (A Visit from St. Nicholas) 的作者

也許你曾經看過這些有名的句子:「這是聖誕節的前一晚,房子裡沒有人醒著,就連老鼠也正在睡覺。」許多人都認為克來門特‧摩爾在18221224日,也就是聖誕節的前一晚,寫下了這首名為「聖尼古拉斯的拜訪」的經典詩作。你應該知道這就是「聖誕節前夕」發生的故事吧。當他從曼哈頓的格林威治村 (Greenwich Village) 回到家中時,摩爾會買一隻火雞當成全家人的聖誕晚餐。後來摩爾為了取悅他的六個小孩,而寫出這個故事,並且在平安夜說給他的小孩們聽。

Perhaps you have read these famous words: "'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." 'Twas the day before Christmas, December 24, the day in 1822 that Clement Moore is thought to have composed the classic poem that was then called "A Visit from St. Nicholas." You probably know it as "The Night Before Christmas." While traveling home from Greenwich Village, in Manhattan, where he had bought a turkey for his family's Christmas dinner, Moore penned the story for the amusement of his six children, with whom he shared the poem that evening.
