A Visit from St. Nicholas by L. Prang

Postby santacla » Tue May 06, 2008 9:20 am

Did you know that one of the early (e.g. 1864) publications of The Night Before Christmas (A Visit From St. Nicholas in this case) was published in 1864 by L. Prang of Boston?

What is interesting is that Louis Prang was the person who introduced the Christmas Card to the United States.

It is pretty interesting, much more interesting closer to Christmas though! ;-)
