twas the night before christmas
By Clement Clarke Moore

24: ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
24 Bobby Hurleys OYO

23: The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
23 Big Boy Situps on my up

22: The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
22 Carolina Drydocks on my down

21: And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,
21 Wall Sit at Sanford Creek Elementary with a 21 slow count from Q

20: When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
20 Homer to Marge IC

19: Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
19 Flutter Kicks IC

18: The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
18 monkey humpers IC

17: When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
17 Mountain Climbers IC

16: With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
16 Air Squats on my down using the picnic benches

15: More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
15 Jump Squats OYO

14: “Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
14 SSH straight count

13: To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
13 Step-ups L+R = 1

12: As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
12 Tempo Merkins

11: And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
11 Apollo Ohnos OYO – L+R = 1

10: As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
10 Broad Jumps OYO

09: He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
09 World War I’s on my up

08: A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
08 Shoulder Taps IC

07: His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
07 Supermans on my Up and Down

06: His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
06 Bonnie-Blairs OYO L+R = 1

05: The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
05 Burpees

04: He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
04 V-ups on my up

03: He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
03 Windshield Wipers

02: He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
02 Get-ups

01: He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
01 Have a Nice Day right at 0800.

Talked to the PAX about the value of living third and how that really resonanted in particular for me this week.
Prayers for Lucky’s cousin’s baby that’s in the NICU with RSV and those that are traveling over the Holidays.
