Twas The Night Before Christmas and All Through The House
I remember when I was little, I nearly memorized this whole thing and I would go around repeating it over and over again.
Decades later, I have found it again. I decided to do my own reading and post it to youtube. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below:
The story captured the imagination of millions over the years. It was written by Clemens C. Moore in the 1800’s and the copyright is from 1912, putting this awesome work squarely in the public domain.
It is such a wonderful story, I remember it well. I had a blue colored book with this story in it as I child. It captures the story of Santa Clause or St. Nicholas the man who delivers toys and gifts to children all over the world on Christmas Eve.
I remember leaving cookies for Santa as I am sure many people who read this will also remember. As a child, I really thought I could smell Santa’s pipe in the middle of the night. Perhaps I really did?
I do not know why Moore’s work captured my attention so well as a child. But I do know that I am not alone. His little story, which was originally written only for his own children became a great hit.
Santa was a big part of Christmas every year. It’s just wonderful when they track Santa every year on RADAR, flying down from the North Pole to deliver his gifts to the children.
The eleves must be busy all year long making those toys.
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is another good Christmas story as is Frosty the Snowman.
Childhood memories are part of what makes Christmas time the best time of the year for many people.
It’s wonderful to have such a great tradition that is passed down from generation to generation, isn’t it?

Aside from being the number one cause of tooth loss, can gum disease kill you? Ongoing research continues to point to the likelihood of a connection between gum disease and other serious diseases such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lung infections and low birth weight, pre-term babies. As research continues, it is likely that even more connections will be discovered.
What You Should Know about Gum Disease is truly the layman’s guide to fighting gum disease. Written in easy to understand language, it explains in detail what every human being with gum tissue (everyone) should know. This guide goes beyond mere brushing and flossing and discusses tools, concepts, techniques and knowledge that will help you to defeat gum disease or prevent it from visiting your mouth in the first place.
The author draws upon and shares personal experiences and success in fighting gum disease as well as the struggle to understand what affects so many people today. This is a book written by a layman for the benefit of non professionals as well as professionals around the world.
Gum disease, a plague that has haunted mankind for thousands of years, is still with us today. It doesn’t show any signs of leaving. Low estimates are that forty percent of the human population has some form of gum disease right now. Higher estimates put that number at eighty percent.
A popular clinic’s website indicates that as many as ninety-five percent of the adult population will have some form of gum disease by age sixty-five. Yet, it has also been found in young children. With these odds, chances are high that What You Should Know about Gum Disease will serve you well.
You do not have to accept gumdisease as an inevitable consequence of aging. Learn what you can do, starting today, to begin fighting an existing case of gum disease or preventing gum disease from visiting your mouth in the first place.
If four to eight out of every ten people have some form of gum disease, it is possible that you or someone in your family is one of them. This book promises to provide information that your dentist either did not know or did not have the time to tell you about. In fact, many dentists may learn a few things about gum disease and fighting it that they were previously unaware of.
Endorsed by a periodontist, a dentist, two physicians and one hygienist, What You Should Know about Gum Disease is ever respectful to the dental profession. It always refers the patient back to the doctor and encourages understanding, communication and compliance between them.
In fact, many dentists may want this book in their waiting room to enhance patient education. They may wish to give this book to every new patient who walks through the door to help patients better understand what gum disease is and what they can do about it at home. This will help initiate discussion and a higher degree and willingness for compliance with the doctor’s home care plan. It can not get much better than this for the concerned doctor or the patient!
Even so, What You Should Know about Gum Disease remains layman friendly both in terminology and readability. This is a book that is a helpful companion to the individual. This book is your friend. It is a lifetime companion that you and everyone else should want on the bookshelf. It is truly your guide to fighting gum disease.

The second item I want to tell you about is that I wrote a little bit about why my book, What You Should Know about Gum Disease is important – and it is important. It’s importance goes far beyond the superficial notion of gum disease itself.
This is a book that touches on our human existence and on issues that are close to our very souls – whether we understand that or not….
