Chris Christie, New Jersey Governor, Reads 'A Visit From St. Nicholas'

Posted: Updated:

Hey, everyone! Are you a fan of the Yuletide season? Or New Jersey? Well, either way, you will be thrilled to see New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reciting Clement Clarke Moore's "A Visit From St. Nicholas," accompanied by the Boston Pops, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

As the governor and professional garnerer of 2012 speculation is best known for his angry, caught-on-YouTube confrontations, you might be curious as to how he handles the part of the poem where Santa's reindeer are clawing up his rooftop and Claus is standing in his living room. Will Christie laugh at Claus, in spite of himself? Or will he level Santa for his redistributionist policies? Sadly, this performance skips over those lines of the poem, and Christie quickly quits the stage -- probably to go off and kill some bears.

Anyway, Merry Christmas, New Jersey! Except for the bears.
