Night Before Christmas Book Reading

Each year, during the Christmas holiday season, the City of Spanish Fort hosts its 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Book Reading.This year's special family event will be held at the Spanish Fort Community Center. Please refer to the calendar on the left side of the city's home page for scheduled details.

Children are encouraged to wear their warmest pajamas and to bring along their favorite blanket to sit on while they gather around the fireplace in the Longleaf Room of Delta Hall.  The evening begins with the joyous singing of Christmas carols, putting  everyone in the Christmas spirit in anticipation of the main event!

With much animation and excitement, the guest readers read aloud from several Christmas holiday books, much to the children’s delight. The final story, Clement Clarke Moore’s memorable poem, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, is read by a very special guest reader from the North Pole! As you can imagine, the atmosphere is magical for all little ones (and grownups) in attendance. Following our story time, cookies and warm cocoa are served to all.   

This memorable event has become an annual tradition for many Spanish Fort and area families. We welcome you to join us and make it a Christmas tradition for your family, too!
