Vintage illustration Christmas holiday story book cover art from the classic children's novel "Twas the Night Before Christmas." This design features a jolly Santa Claus climbing down the chimney of a house with a sack full of toys on Christmas Eve. Bright, twinkling, yellow stars are in the blue sky. Happy Christmas to All and to All a Good Night! Merry Christmas! Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
