Santa's Whiskers

"His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!  His

droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, and the

​beard on his chin was as white as the snow. "

Clement Clark Moore (1779-1863)

Professor of Oriental and Greek Literature

​Author of "Twas the Night Before Christmas")
