In December 2016, I received a fun gift from my husband’s cousin, Judy, who ALWAYS sends me a gift for a book release. This gift had a definite Christmas theme and not just ANY Christmas theme, but…Jane Austen. Judy sent me Mr. Darcy’s Night Before Christmas. Well, I read it on video in 2016, then in 2017, so now it’s become a little tradition. It’s such a fun book and it’s even more delightful to share it with friends. So…if you’re up for a little storytelling with hints of Austen, then grab your snack of choice, snuggle up with a cozy blanket, and enjoy this fun twist on the classic, Twas the Night Before Christmas.
About the Book
Clement Clarke Moore’s Christmas classic meets Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice when Mr. Darcy gets his own visit from St. Nicholas. In this parody of the beloved original poem, Santa teaches Darcy the true meaning of the holiday and helps him get what he’s always wanted—a wife!
JULIE PETERSEN has fond memories of hiding under her covers at night with a flashlight just so she could finish whatever chapter she was on and a few more after that. When not reading Jane Austen, she can be found singing and spoiling her nieces and nephews. Julie currently lives in Utah.
SHERYL DICKERT has illustrated four other Night Before Christmas books in this series. She lives in Salt Lake City.
