Speaking at ACFW DFW on Twas the Night Before Christmas

At the 2019 Christmas Party, at ACFW DFW,  I spoke on the history and poetic structure of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. 

Not one time when we pulled this story/poem out to read, did my parents tell me it was written in anapestic tertrameter. 

Thinking about Point of View, I'm taken with how the poem's format keeps you completely in the story. Not only that, but end though the can anticipate where each line is going, the rhyme doesn't allow you to skip the line, but demands hearing the rhyme.
