So it's officially Christmas Eve today and tonight, I wanted to re-post this little ditty from a friend of mine, for all my friends and colleagues everywhere. Hoping you all have a great Holiday. Wishing you all a very Happy Safe and Healthy Holiday.Enjoy..........T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS (In New York Style)
T’was a month before Christmas and all through the house…
We were off our computers… seems the cat ate the mouse…
Mom’s stockings were hung in the bathroom with care…
She was hoping they’d dry, while she finished her hair.
The children were ‘roused from their snug little beds…
While visions of school work polluted their heads…
“Hey Mom, where’s my sneakers?”... “Hey Babe, where’s my tie?”...
“Did’ya take out the garbage?”…”Who ate all the pie?
T’was three weeks before Christmas, and you’re shopping
You ask what he wants, he says anything’s fine..
The kids were not subtle when they made out their lists…
I-pods and play stations, was there something they missed?
As we schlepped down our stoop off to work and to school…
Children wave to their parents then they try to look cool…
Mom and Pop on the subway that is smelly and stinky,
She hints to her hubby as she points to her pinky…
T’was two weeks before Christmas with the mobs and the crowds..
And the pushing and shoving and the music is loud..
Deck the halls, fa-la-la-ing being blared in your ear…
You hope that St. Nicholas soon would be here!
He’s off to the jeweler picking up on her hint,
It must be a ring, that won’t make her squint…
(“You kidding me Mister, you call that a stone?
How much are you asking? HOW MUCH?
For that little piece of…You’ll gift wrap it for me?
For free? Okay I’ll take it!..
(Meanwhile, back at the poem….)
T’was a week before Christmas and out in the street...
There’s more pushing and shoving and stepping on feet… The tree at Rock Center and Santas galore...
The last minute shoppers getting stuck in the doors...
The holiday parties, kissing up to the boss…
You know that your bonus is a gain not a loss…
‘Cause at last years party, he got a lap dance from Trixie,
(His secretary…he gave her a raise ‘cause she gave him a raise…and I got one too because I got it all on my camera phone!)
T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house,
Again we were stirring, with the cat and the mouse..
The stockings were hung by the LAZY-Boy chair,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there..
The children were nestled all snug in their beds…
While visions of Game Stations danced in their heads.
Then out on the stoop there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter,
I went to the window and threw up the sash. …
It was Bernie and Betty, and boy were they smashed!
When out on the street what should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer..
With a little old driver who kept circling the block,
St. Nick was upset….there was NO place to park!
He got back in his sleigh and said, “My work here is done!
I’ve got more places to go, so I gotta run!”
As he left he shouted, “I’ll see you next year!”
My neighbor yelled, “We’re trying to sleep over here!
“Now Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet! On Cupid! On, Donder! and Blitzen!
To the top of the stoop! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
Then I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
“HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!”
And Mrs. Murphy screamed, “Shut up already or I’m calling the cops!”
