Correct! It was written by Washington Irving

The description of the Christmas season appears in "The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon," a collection of stories and essays by Washington Irving published as a collection in 1820.

The book included five stories about English Christmas traditions that had fallen out of favor in Britain but that were revived in America by Irving's writings. Charles Dickens even credited Irving as an influence on his own views of Christmas, as reflected in "A Christmas Carol."
