Twas The Night Before Christmas Author:Clement C. Moore No back cover description. This is Moore's Christmas classic story with illustrations by Haddon Sundblom from 1931-1964. Very vintage like. It's a tribute to the Coca-Cola Snata. In 1930 Haddon Sundblom painted a jolly, red-garbed Santa for the Coca-Cola Company's 1931 Christmas campaign.
