You are hopefully enjoying some time off with family and friends during the holiday season and not thinking much about inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). At my house we like to read "The Night Before Christmas" for the kids, which got me to thinking about all the different versions of this poem. Wouldn't you know there are a couple versions out there just for people like us? For your reading pleasure, here are "'Twas the Night Before an IBD Christmas" and "A Visit From St. Ostomy." Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you'll certainly appreciate the writers' creativity and have yourself a chuckle.
