We all know the story “The Night Before Christmas.” What if the night before Christmas didn’t exactly go as planned for Santa?
A new book called Santa’s (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas is the story of Santa’s Christmas Eve that doesn’t turn out how he expects. One little thing leads to another and everything about Christmas turns into a series of funny surprises.
I’ve read Santa’s (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas to my kids several times already and we all chuckle and giggle every time. My kids love how everything turns out wacky! (Note – If your kids are familiar with and like the classic book, Wacky Wednesday, they’ll definitely enjoy this one, too!)
Reading this book has become a new Christmas tradition for us.
One Christmas Eve it was a cold stormy night;
And nothing at the North Pole was going quite right.
The sleigh was all packed and the reindeer were drawn.
But Santa did not have his Santa suit on. Mrs. Claus was in bed and feeling quite sick.
So doing the laundry was the job of St. Nick.
Only what came out of the washer was no longer bright red.
What he thought was the soap turned out to be purple paint instead!
That night wherever he went all over the world,
people saw changes in Christmas that had their heads swirled.
The pink snow and the burnt candy canes were the last final straw.
Zany and wacky and –just not right at all.
Christmas is ruined and it is all his own fault.
Will the things in the world just come to a halt?
The book was written by two children’s book authors, DK Simoneau & David Radman. The story was conceived out of an interesting conversation between the two authors of how much of Christmas might change if something as simple as Santa’s suit changed to purple.
DK Simoneau says, “There are things in the illustrations that aren’t even reflected in the words of the story, like upside down snowmen, green mittens and plaid candy canes instead of striped ones, a clever little mouse named Matches popping up everywhere, and so much more.”
