Gullah Night Before Christmas

  • By James Rice
  • By Virginia Mixson Geraty

This innovative story infuses Clement C. Moore's classic poem with
traditional Gullah folklore and characters. Traveling through a coastal South
Carolina town, Buh Rabbit delivers his presents to all of the good boys and

Santa never contends with a villain as he makes his rounds, yet, following
Gullah tradition, Buh Fox has his mouth set on rabbit for dinner and his eyes
set on the presents. The result is an action-filled Christmas Eve that children
will never forget.

This is the only Christmas book written for children in Gullah, an
English-derived Creole language spoken primarily by African-Americans along the
South Carolina and Georgia coasts. Gullah continues to gain both national and
international attention and appreciation as people are exposed to its rich
language and the folklore and customs associated with it.
