For your Christmas Eve listening pleasure a selection of readings of The Night Before Christmas. First up Stephen Fry.

Next up is Stan Lee:

LeVar Burton reads the poem with illustrations from Tomie DePaola.

Elton John!

Even William Shatner had a version:

The Learning Station’s animated version with music:

This one is NOT the traditional version of the poem but John Cleese’s version in which Santa gets captured and the reindeer eaten and . . .well I won’t spoil the ending. It made me laugh, but if the ideas of capturing Santa or eating reindeer makes your blood boil don’t listen.

Which one was your favorite?
