Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro was asked to stop by the Catherine Street Community center in the city of Poughkeepsie to read the classic holiday tale. According to a press release Molinaro had a similar experience growing up when his grandfather would read him the poem and he was happy to pass on the holiday cheer to a group of excited young students. If you feel like you  missed out on really great event, have no fear. The video was uploaded to Youtube and you can watch it below:

'Twas The Night Before Christmas is obviously a classic, my mom used to read The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe. Not necessarily a Christmas story, but it's more about the tradition and that I still remember it to this day. Let us know your holiday traditions on Facebook.
