A Funny, Zany, Wacky Night Before Christmas!

Children’s Book Offers Hilarious Take on What Really Goes on in Santa’s Head The Night Before Christmas

Lakewood, Colorado based author DK Simoneau has teamed with David Radman and written an enchanting, colorful and fun-filled children’s book that sheds a whole new perspective on what it’s like to be Santa on the night before Christmas.  It is a story that sparks the imagination with fun and of pondering what might really happen if one event were to set off a series of changes to Christmas as we know it.

One Christmas Eve it was a cold stormy night;

And nothing at the North Pole was going quite right.

The sleigh was all packed and the reindeer were drawn.

But Santa did not have his Santa suit on. Mrs. Claus was in bed and feeling quite sick.

So doing the laundry was the job of St. Nick.

Only what came out of the washer was no longer bright red.

What he thought was the soap turned out to be purple paint instead!

That night wherever he went all over the world,

people saw changes in Christmas that had their heads swirled.

The pink snow and the burnt candy canes were the last final straw.

Zany and wacky and --just not right at all.

Christmas is ruined and it is all his own fault.

Will the things in the world just come to a halt?

Santa’s (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas is a whimsical tale of Santa’s journey through a Christmas Eve that doesn’t go as he expects.  One small event leads to a series of surprises that change Santa and Christmas as we know it. It’s a story to spark the imagination, make kids giggle, and bring a smile even to a grownup’s face!  Here is a story that even grownup will relate to and enjoy.

The story was conceived out of an interesting conversation between the two authors of how much of Christmas might change if something as simple as Santa’s suit changed to purple.

DK Simoneau says, “There are things in the illustrations that aren’t even reflected in the words of the story, like upside down snowmen, green mittens and plaid candy canes instead of striped ones, a clever little mouse named Matches popping up everywhere, and so much more.”
