LOL!! I love that one. My brother sent it to me one year!
I found a book over twenty years ago in a Tampa bookstore called "The Cajun Night before Christmas" in which Santa arrived in a pirogue pulled by eight ALLIGATOR!! I didn't buy it, and later kicked myself for not having done so. A couple of years ago, I was in a bookstore in Ocean Springs MS in JUNE and found the book on the shelves. My sister wondered why I was screaming for joy! Needless to say I bought it, and it has joined the pantheon of Christmas books at my house!

There's also the Cowboy Night Before Christmas, A Southern Time Christmas and An Irish Night Before Christmas. Different authors but all illustrated by James Rice. There are probably more but these are the ones I own. They're so much fun for my kids to compare and contrast! Lots of great lessons from these books if there are any home schoolers reading this!
