'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a mouse.
Because they were both tucked up,
Sleeping soundly in their beds,
While visions of yummy treats
Danced in their heads.
Papa Mouse sneaked in quietly
With cheese for his small mousies.
They were dreaming of Christmas Day
and visiting cousins from other housies!

Inside the walls, everything is quiet; we can't hear the parents prepare.
Tiny morsels have been collected and saved, so everyone can have a share.
Oh, the celebrations that will be beginning soon! The party is about to start!
So much thought has gone into the festivities, so much time, and so much heart!
"Wake up! Wake up! Wake up everyone! Today is Christmas Day!!
Look at the treats Santa left in your stockings before rushing off to play!"
