On the Tree: The Night Before Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve!

I hope you’ve wrapped up all your Christmas preparations and are sitting back enjoying your favorite Christmas movies.

I’ve had a few of comments asking if I would share some close ups of our Christmas tree that’s twinkling in the background behind my Cardinal Christmas Table.

Partridge Pear Tree Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

It’s not a theme tree, rather a tree with ornaments collected over 25+ years. Many of the ornaments are Radko, received as gifts from my hubby, family or friends through the years.

Santa travels by car rather than sleigh to our house! My how time speeds by. . . this car ornament has been hanging around on the tree since 1999 according to the date on the license plate.

There are other merry motoring ornaments on the tree (you can take a closer look at the ornaments at Merry Motoring Table, HERE. )

There are Santas on the tree. . .

And there are some nautical-theme ornaments.

This short, squat nutcracker is one of my favorite ornaments and always brings a smile to my face. . .

Nutcracker Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

I’ve highlighted some ornaments to share along with a holiday tradition and poem, “A Visit from St. Nicholas“,  or more commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore.

A Visit from St. Nicholas as told by the ornaments on the tree | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #christmas #ornaments #radko #tree

From our home to yours, wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

'Twas the Night Before Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,

Radko House Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

Mickey Mouse Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

Stocking Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

Santa in Chimney Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

The children were nestled all snug in their beds;

Dog and Cat in Santa Hat Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

Nutcracker Prince and Clara Christmas Ornaments | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,

Mrs. Claus Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap,

Santa in bed Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

Christmas Tree | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

Santa and Moon Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,

Gave a lustre of midday to objects below,

Santa and Reindeer Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

When what to my wondering eyes did appear,

But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny rein-deer,

Reindeer Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:

Santa and Reindeer Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

Santa and Sleigh Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,

When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;

Santa on rooftop Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

So up to the housetop the coursers they flew

With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too—

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

As I drew in my head, and was turning around,

Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,

And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

Santa Noel Bell Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,

And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack.

Santa Noel Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples, how merry!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow;

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,

And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath;

Santa Christmas Tree Topper | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

He had a broad face and a little round belly

That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,

Nautical Nick Christmas Ornament and Tree | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

And laying his finger aside of his nose,

And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

Santa Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

Santa Car Christmas Ornament | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #Christmas #tree

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight—

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

      Merry Christmas Mary, we had our Christmas Eve Dinner and then to Church for a beautiful service so I am just sitting down to look at todays post. My island I’d full of just washed china, glasses and flatware but a little room for me and my iPad.Your tree is perfectly beautiful and your husband quite the guy for giving you all those beautiful Christopher Radko Ornaments. When my children were little we would always read “The Night Before Christmas” at bedtime on Christmas Eve. Thank you for your ornament illustration of the poem.

    Oh Mary, so clever to match your ornaments with the Christmas poem. What a delight to see all (some!) your ornaments up close and personal. All are so beautifully detailed and unique, especially the topper. I’ve never seen a topper like yours and so many different Santas. A real treat for me this morning. Thank you for adding the Manger ornament, it wouldn’t be Christmas without one on the tree. Merry Christmas!

    Mary, thank you for sharing the close up photos of each of these ornaments. Our tree is also one filled with ornaments collected over decades plus some from our chidhoods, I always like to admire other’s Christmas trees during the season. It takes years to create such a special collection, and I like to take in the beauty of the different ornaments. I visited a friend last week whose tree is covered in fabulous needlepoint ornaments she has stitched over decades and she mixed in her collection of exquisite Radko ornaments. The sparkle was amazing! Love this post and the clever way you presented these stunning ornaments. Christmas love sent your way.

    As always, your blog is so inspiringly beautiful. These are my favorite “Kind” of trees…ones with lots of memories attached to each little ornament. Meaningful and sentimental goes much deeper that the decorator trees. Love all your posts, but this one is just delightful .

You have shown it a couple years now and I love it, but no stores ever know what I’m talking about and I can’t find it online. Can you help me? Who made it, or where did you find it? Thank you so much for your help in advance. Happy New Year! Love your Blog! Pam
