He wobbled and wiggled and twisted about.
He stood stock still then let a belch out.

From the top floor we shouted, we called him by name
"Santa, what the heck are you drinking? Have you no shame?"

When down the chimney Santa came with a crack
I muttered to myself "Oh what a hack"

Blessed are those who bring out the BEAUTY in others!!

You are blessed if you understand that VERY LITTLE is needed to make life happy.

LOVE is a blessing that comes from the HEART.

ENCOURAGEMENT is a blessing of HOPE.

Being wth those you LOVE is a BLESSING!!

Blessings come from sharing HAPPINESS.

Live well, laugh often, and bless each day.

So, I, in my apron, and HoneyDew in his hat
Went up to the top floor with no plan of attack.

The moonlight shone through all the holes in our roof
We could see it reflecting off each little hoof

When all of a sudden a loud crash we all heard, then a jingle and a thump... and a thump... and a third!

Dad sat counting the batteries on hand,
While I wondered aloud if I had enough pans.

The toddler was shaking gifts under the tree, while the others were chanting, "We must have a Wii!"

Old cards were strung up and placed in a row,
To honor those no long with us that the children should know;

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Everyone was stirring even the mouse

You said....Every person should take one couplet (Two Lines) in order.

How are we to know the order in which we are to write the parody and who writes for what line?

NO ENTRIES ALLOWED UNTIL DEC. 15th, but I wanted to put it up so you could start thinking about it.

Parody of the Night Before Christmas

Here are some examples. urbanlegends.about.com/od/historical
/a
/twas_the_night.htm
Please do not copy them here.

Every person should take one couplet (Two Lines) in order.

Parody: a story that mocks or satirizes other genres, people, fictional characters or works. Such works employ sarcasm, stereotyping, mockery of scenes, symbols or lines from other works, and the obviousness of meaning in a character's actions.

Original text of the Night Before Christmas (divided into couplets):

'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;

And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,

And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."
