‘Twas the Night Before Xmas, and in My Garage…

A gearhead's visit from Santa.

Ho, Ho, Ho! Ducati Don's Vette is getting ready for Santa's visit Saturday night.

In 1822 Clement Clark Moore, a New Yorker, wrote the now everlasting poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas or, as it has become known, The Night Before Christmas, for his children. Recently I received a version of the famous poem from Don Headrick, aka DucatiDon, of Portland, Oregon, who noted it’s been around for a long time but that he has ‘made few tweaks’ to the rhymes that readers of might find particularly appropriate.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in my garage

…there wasn’t a trace of an Audi or Dodge.
The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,
So I figured I’d mess with my Corvette for a bit.

I popped the release and lifted the hood,
when a deep voice behind me said “Hey! Looks pretty good.”
Well as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,
And there by my workbench, stood good Ol’ Saint Nick!
