Need a little Christmas, right this very minute?

This post is a bit of a cheat. And at this festive season, too. What's this blog coming to?
However, there is a reason behind the lack of keyboarding involved in producing this post. Who am I to disregard the iconic Christmas Eve scenario penned by Clement Clarke Moore? (or Major Henry Livingston, Jr. as is now believed.)

In his 1823 verse,  
he clearly states, on the very first page, that at this busy time of year one's keyboard tools are to be stilled. He was a man ahead of his time.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
