This famous poem shown here was first
attributed to Clement Clarke Moore. Arguments now exist that it may
possibly have been written by the C18th Major Henry Livingston Junior
and that Moore was first to publish the poem with other works of his own. The internet has spawned many imitations from the computer nerd's version to
the adult version. Many of these circle the internet at Christmas and
are frankly now tiresome.
None of the imitations has the magic of the original, which
bears repeating here. It's still the most heart warming of magical
poems and is one of the world's most read poems, especially on Christmas
Eve. It is all about memories, expectations, hopes, fears, enchantment
and good-hearted fun.
Fashion-Era.com looks at women's costume and fashion history and analyses the mood of an era. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values. Homelife and politics also
contribute to lifestyle trends, which in turn influence the clothes we wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period.
