Reading by the FireIt's the twenty-third day of December. The Night Before Christmas ("A Visit from St. Nicholas") was first published in the Sentinel on this day in 1823. We also celebrate Festivas today. It's also time for the Roman festival, Larentalia. Take a look at the reading selection for today.

What do writers say?

"Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.

"And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to you glad."
- John Greenleaf Whittier

Selected reading for this day:

Enjoy your reading this day! It's almost Christmas... What are your holiday reading traditions?
