The name of this series of Ceaco jigsaw puzzles is called “‘Twas the Night…” and is based on Clement Clarke Moore’s poem The Night before Christmas or A visit from St. Nicholas . The words of that poem are:
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.
When I look at Jane Wooster Scott’s puzzle entitled ‘Twas the Night: Spirited Sprites, I wonder if maybe these spirited sprites were more interested in getting in some spirited fun before they nestled in their cozy beds. This puzzle shows all the fun that children can have especially in areas like Canada, New England and the Upper Midwest of the United States once schools have started their holiday break. It looks like so much fun, that I wish I could join them in their winter fun.
As you and your loved ones rest and relax this Christmas season [or any snow days this winter], you can assemble this Christmas jigsaw puzzle and discuss your plans for later on playing in the snow.
