COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The program of events includes a reading of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" by George Averill a quarter to each hour starting at 5:45 p.m.

George's aunt, Lula Moore Averill, was one of the last surviving relatives of Dr. Clement Moore, who wrote "A Visit from St Nicholas" for his children in 1822. St. Nicholas is the patron saint of children and had never before been associated with Christmas. The poem is now known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."
