the still of the night

the still of (the) night

The most calm and quiet period in the night. And in the still of night, when you and your brother are fast asleep, Santa comes down through the chimney to leave presents under the tree! I love sitting out on the back porch in the still of the night, gazing up at the eternity of stars above.
