Christmas Project:

Twas the night before Christmas
Helping Santa Fly

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through The Grove
Not a creature was stirring, not even a dove.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
It seems an emergency had arose in the dead of night,
and Santa Clause was having trouble with flight.
The reindeer and Santa with all of his presents,
Had put a lot of force into the surrounding cements.

We analyzed with caution and analyzed with care,
To make certain the reindeer could safely fly there.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

I flew out the door with my stamp in hand,
shouting with glee to the sound of the band.
And told Santa outright right then and right there,
to have nothing to fear, for we've analyzed the air.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

The employees of HEA were honored to help Santa fly this year and wish all their friends and family a Happy Holidays.
