Modernised a little, not destroyed completely!,

This review is from: Twas The Night Before Christmas: Edited By Santa Claus for the Benefit of Children of the 21st Century (Kindle Edition)
As other reviewers say, this is a modernised version to take out things that aren't so celebrated in modern society (smoking in particular). I don't particularly agree with censorship, but also think it would look a bit strange nowadays to have Santa puffing away on a pipe in a children's book... You'll have to decide whether it bothers you!
Censorship aside, this is beautifully illustrated and displays well on my Kindle Fire. It has a lovely, cosy, Christmassy feel and made me feel the first stirrings of anticipation for the festive season! My children (2 and 4) also like the pictures and I think this will become increasingly popular in the run up to Christmas.
The pictures have lots of detail and paint a delightfully nostalgic and idealised view of Christmas - wish it was always like that in my house....!
