“A Shannon County Christmas” by Dale Haverstick
If you are of a need to getting into the holiday season in Traveler Country, there is no better way than to take three minutes and listen to this unforgettable translation of C. L. Moore’s poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
The You Tube translation is by Dr. Dale Haverstick, of Eminence, who has been known for some time to pen a song or two, often sung by fellow Shannon County residents Alvin and Andy Bressler and their clan at the Current River Opry, and the Cross Country Trail Ride music events.
If the tears aren’t running from your eyes by the conclusion of this heartfelt rendition– well you’re taking Christmas way too seriously. Enjoy.
