My favorite way to learn about history is through the 'Drunk History' re-enactment videos on Will Ferrell's comedy site Funny or Die. The latest video features a hilariously Chris Monroe-esque read through of 'The Night Before Christmas' starring Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, and Jim Carrey as Santa Claus.

The only thing funnier than watching drunk people dance is watching them explain things. The folks at Funny or Die bottled lightning when they came up with the idea for 'Drunk History.' Watch as this extremely drunk historian tries really, really hard to remember 'The Night Before Christmas.'
