克来门特.摩尔 (Clement Moore) 被认为是在18221224日完成圣尼古拉斯的拜访 (A Visit from St. Nicholas) 的作者

也许你曾经看过这些有名的句子:「这是圣诞节的前一晚,房子里没有人醒着,就连老鼠也正在睡觉。」许多人都认为克来门特.摩尔在18221224日,也就是圣诞节的前一晚,写下了这首名为「圣尼古拉斯的拜访」的经典诗作。你应该知道这就是「圣诞节前夕」发生的故事吧。当他从曼哈顿的格林威治村 (Greenwich Village) 回到家中时,摩尔会买一只火鸡当成全家人的圣诞晚餐。后来摩尔为了取悦他的六个小孩,而写出这个故事,并且在平安夜说给他的小孩们听。

While traveling home from Greenwich Village, in Manhattan, where he had bought a turkey for his family's Christmas dinner, Moore penned the story for the amusement of his six children, with whom he shared the poem that evening.
