“The Storytime Pajama Party for Chris Van Allsburg’s ‘The Polar Express’ is one of our most beloved Barnes & Noble holiday traditions,” said Stephanie Fryling, vice president of merchandising, children’s books at Barnes & Noble. “Each year, families look forward to gathering at our stores in their favorite pajamas to celebrate the holidays with this treasured story.”

In “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg, a young boy is welcomed aboard a magical trip to the North Pole, where he gets to make his Christmas wish and meet Santa Claus himself.

Guests are encouraged to take photos of themselves and their loved ones enjoying the event and share them to their social media accounts using the hashtag #BNStorytime.
