*Includes Table of Contents


Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, Christmas trees, lights, the baby Jesus, and, of course, presents. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim.


Christmas has been popular for centuries, and it only continues to get more popular today, with Christmas season extending months in advance of December 25. And though much has been written of Christmas, its exact origins are still mysterious. Historians are unsure what date Jesus was born on, or whether Christmas Day coincides with previous pagan holidays.


Regardless, Christmas is always the perfect time for holiday cheer, and reading classic Christmas stories like A Christmas Carol or Twas the Night before Christmas. This collection of Christmas poems includes poetry written by some of the world’s most famous poets and authors through the ages, ranging from religious subjects to the whimsical. It is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen Christmas-related pictures, including Christmas trees, the Nativity Scene, Santa Claus, historical depictions of the holiday, and more.

    Goodnight, Sweet Prince ~ Chapter 1

    &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp nbsp &nbsp &nbsp { Lyna's P.O.V }
    <p>
    Lyna blinked open her cobalt eyes to the stormy sky above.
    <p>
    Wait, stormy?
    <p>
    She sat up with a groan, putting a scraped hand to her head. Her throat felt like sandpaper, her breath rasping through her chest.
    <p>
    A crack of thunder broke the ominous silence and raindrops fell to the ground, miniscule at first and growing in intensity. Soon, fat droplets burst upon the parched earth, turning the rocky redness in a giant mud wallow.
    <p>
    Lyna glanced around, her soaked and ashy shift clinging to her frail body. Her village was nowhere in sight, the downpour spurring up the fine dust and creating a thick fog. She was almost blind to her surroundings.
    <p>
    Thunder rumbled the ground, a far-off flash of lightening illuminating her gaunt face.
    <p>
    More rumbling.
    <p>
    That couldn't be thunder, could it?
    <p>
    Even more of the rumbling.
    <p>
    A loud trumpeting noise shattered through the mist like a sandstorm hitting glass.
    <p>
    Lyna shrank back, trying to huddle inside her torn clothing.
    <p>
    Her dark hair snaked around her thin shoulders, acting more of a distraction than comfort. She took up a shiver, the ground-shaker drawing closer.
    <p>
    Suddenly, a flailing gray. . . Thing. . . Burst forth, bright yellow and red paint on it so bright it hurt Lyna's eyes.
    <p>
    The thing grew larger until it attached to a head, the head easily reaching up a good twenty meters.
    <p>
    Large, flat feet followed, stomping the ground in a controlled rampage.
    <p>
    Lyna cowed, shuffling backwards.
    <p>
    The beast trumpeted again and wrapped its appendage around the girl's small waist, lifting her up as if she were a mere pillow.
    <p>
    On the beast's back, a car was set, a heavy tarp draped across the top posts to keep the rain out. Inside, a dark-skinned young man watched her, his shadowy eyes glinting with cold curiousity.
    <p>
