I took a couple of photos in our store today and while looking at the stockings hung on the wall, the poem, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," popped into my head. I am no Clement Clarke Moore, but here is a much shorter "Fairytale" version...
'Twas the first week of December and all through the store
Fairytale team members were hand packing brownie gifts galore.
The store's stockings were hung by the tree with care;
garland, poinsettias, and purple ornaments were everywhere.
Store visitors sampled a fudge brownie, chewy cookie or bar,
deciding which flavor was their favorite so far.
And bakers were baking, customer service was on calls
With generous gifters who didn't want to go to the malls.
When lo and behold, more people arrived.
Cheerful store helpers were on hand to help them decide.
No gift was too big, no gift was too small.
Fairytale has the perfect size present for all.
Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings.
Whatever you celebrate, we hope your shopping stress is fleeting.
