60. ‘The Night Before Christmas’
Clement Clarke Moore wrote "The Night Before Christmas," right? Well, maybe. Nearly two centuries after the poem was first published anonymously in a New York newspaper, scholars are still arguing about the authorship. A rival claim comes from the family of Col. Henry Livingston Jr., who died in 1828, a few years after the poem's first publication and before Moore publicly claimed the work. Some experts say the poem's style matches Livingston's more than Moore's, but others dispute that.
