'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Westy
Not a creature was stirring, not even our dog Pesty;
The stockings were hung from the visors with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of split-windows danced in their heads;
And mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out in the campground there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bunk to see what was the matter.

Away to the windshield I flew like Hatari,
Parted the curtains and flipped up a safari.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But nine miniature buses, carrying nine tiny reindeer,
Oops! not the last bus, its driver, so quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
35 miles per hour up the hill they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, BREADLOAF! now, DELUXE! now, BAY and KOMBI!
To the top of the hill! Right next to the wall!
Now putt away! putt away! putt away all!"
So up to our hill-top the buses they flew,
Packed chock-full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard like a knocker
The tapping and rapping of each little rocker.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
 From our pop-top St. Nicholas came in with a bound.
A bundle of parts he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

Upholstery for Marie, disk brakes for Mitch
A tranny for Steve, and a new headlight switch.
Deep in the bag was a little barndoor for Ken,
Who as we all know is a darn good admin.
And of course there's chilly Mr. Shoemacher,
For whom Santa has an NOS Eberspacher.
For Nikki there are hubcaps, for John a CV
(This isn't how I heard this read on TV!)
For Bob there were manuals in the original German,
They'll come in handy when he writes a new Sermon.
A new speedo for Thom, valve guides for Gary,
Headlights for David, to keep him all merry.
For Kathy there'll be a year's pass to ski.
She'll drive to the slopes in Her Majesty!
Stainless screws for Sean, a fan for Ed,
Keep that heat flowin. so his cheeks don.t get red.

Santa spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, through the pop-top he rose;
He sprang to his bus, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all drove like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
