lovely vintage find

As I haven't had a chance to do any op shopping this month, I thought i would share with you a lovely book i found not long ago. I found it at a Salvo's in the 5 for $1 section.

It's a 1963 version of 'The Night Before Christmas' by Clement C. Moore. I'm sure i had a copy of this as a child.

The line "He had a broad face and a round little belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly'' always made me giggle as a child and still makes me smile today. I must admit i was a little disappointed that my daughter didn't find this as funny when i read it to her.

Beautiful illustrations. A smoking Santa!!!! What? he he he ho ho ho

Merry Christmas Everyone
