There’s Nothing Better Than Morgan Freeman Reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ (VIDEO)

Morgan Freeman - Christmas

There are some standard Christmas things to love: buttery cookies, cups of creamy cocoa, sparkly tinsel, magical (and slightly headache-inducing) lights…the dulcet voice of Morgan Freeman reading the classic poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Watch the video, provided by the charity network Chideo, below as wintry scenes alternate with shots of Freeman reading in a cozy room filled with tasteful decorations. We’re pretty sure there’s even a twinkle in Freeman’s eyes as he reads all the reindeer names and describe’s Santa’s belly shaking like “a bowl full of jelly.”

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
