Creepmas - Boris Karloff reads The Year Without a Santa Claus

Presented on this last day of Creepmas, the story of "The Year Without a Santa Claus" as read by the legendary Boris Karloff. I know what you're all thinking, no Fink, he narrated "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and, yes, he did narrate that but he also recorded a narration of the original story that became the Rankin Bass classic. Now you may be disappointed to find out that, even though the basic story is the same, the stop-motion animated special we know and love added quite a bit to the story. There's no Heat Miser or Snow Miser here, no Jingle or Jangle the Elf, no Mother Nature, not even Mrs. Claus. The only characters that appear in both the story and the animated special are Santa and the little boy named Ignatius Thistlewhite. Now sit back and let Grandpa Boris read to you....
