A Moment in Time took place on Dec 23, 1823. An author named Clement C. Moore did not have a computer or iPad, but he wrote something huge that changed our lives.

It was published anonymously.

The place was Troy. The paper which published it was the N.Y. Sentinel

It was story about a jolly, plum pudding Santa says the Globe and Mail today in a piece titled “A Visit from St. Nicholas”.

This literature professor acknowledged authorship years later.

It’s how we got the story of Santa in case you were wondering.

Happy Christmas if you celebrate it. And if you don’t, enjoy the days off anyhow because others celebrate it.
