CLOSED FOR CHRISTMAS
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
DEC 24–25
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;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!
