Simply tinkle a bell and have a trinkle
And remember

Read an Excerpt

We hang everything
on our Christmas tree
Ornaments big and bright
and all of these sparkling icicles
and twirling balls of white

I always hang a star on top
With angels in between

Here's how many lights we have —
Thirty-seven and sixteen



I'm rawther fond of caroling
Fa la on every floor

Fa la la la to catering

Fa la from door to door

Fa la la la fa la la lolly ting tingles of angel hair. Blow music of trinkles and drinkles of glass there's Christmas everywhere

We sang Noel for 506

Silent Night for 507

We didn't sing for 509
at the request of 511
But ho ho ho and jiggeldy ping
We were not dismayed
We skibbled into the exit sign
and sang

Oh trinkles oh drinkles fa la fa lo

for Lily
the nightmaid

Skipperdee lost a tooth
singing Good King Wenceslaus
But we found it behind
this azalea plant
hiding under this moss

Meet the Author

Kay Thompson (1909–1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Miss Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson became a literary sensation when Eloise was published in 1955. The book has sold more than two million copies to date. Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight created four more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, and Eloise Takes a Bawth.

Hilary Knight, son of artist-writers Clayton Knight and Katharine Sturges, was educated at the Art Students League, where he studied with Reginald Marsh. Besides the Eloise books, Hilary Knight has illustrated more than fifty books for children, six of which he wrote himself. He lives and works in New York City, not far from The Plaza Hotel.
