Watch: 'Orange is the New Black' Has a Fresh Take on 'The Night Before Christmas'

You don’t typically expect to get much Christmas cheer from “Orange is the New Black.” For one thing, the show tends to premiere new seasons on Netflix in June or July, and for another it’s a fairly intense dramedy about life behind prison walls. 

But the show, whose fourth season is currently set for 2016, has a holiday treat for those who like their classic tales with a dash of profanity and some violence: a rewrite of Clement Clarke Moore’s poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (better known as “The Night Before Christmas”), performed by the entire cast, in character. It might be just the gift you or the “Orange” fan in your life is looking for this year. 

Check it out above. And happy holidays to us all, convicts and free men alike.
