Overview

Even though Santa gets all the acclaim, behind the scenes, it's Mrs. Claus who keeps everything running smoothly through the busiest time of year at the North Pole. Finally, Mrs. Claus gets the acknowledgment she deserves in this rewriting of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas":

'Twas the night after Christmas and time for a pause;
Collapsed in the corner
Sat tired Mrs. Claus.

The stockings were crooked,
The house was a mess;
The tree had tipped over
She couldn't care less...

I ordered this not realizing that it would be better for a mom than for just anyone. So, when it arrived, it was not fitting for the little girl I had bought it for. That was disappointing. HOWEVER, it is a great story and a perfect gift for my mom who does so much every year to make Christmas magical. It's a perfect gift for her.

This book gives credit to the woman behind the scene of the holidays. There are thousands of women who deserve recognition for their efforts during the festive time of year. Finally Mrs. Claus gets the acknowledgment she deserves.... 'Behind every jolly Santa is a tired Mrs. Claus'.
