'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE REDNESDAY
'Twas the night before Rednesday when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even the mouse.
The aprons were hung by the window with care
In hopes that a cooking spree soon would be there!
The host lady nestled all snug in her bed
While visions of blog memes danced in her head.
When up from the downstairs there rose such a clatter
She sprang from her bed to see what's the matter.
Away down the stairs she flew like a flash
Tripped over the glue gun and fell on her ***.
Recovering quickly she ran through the rooms
Nearly stumbling this time o'er the red-handled broom.
When what to her wondering eyes should appear,
But the miniature sleigh, from her shelf, and eight deer.
With a wee little driver - so cute, full of sugar;
She knew in a moment it was the Knee Hugger!
He motioned for her to go down the hall
To look at the ladder that held all the towels.
They each were displayed with pride of their fame.
He whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
"On, Comet! On, Cupid, On, Donder and Blitzen!"
But, wait! At the top rung, one more for the prose
It was Rudolph, the one with the shiny red nose!
"We'll show these to your friends who live online,
They're always there, no matter the time."
Then to the computer to visit the blogs;
She will show them her bowl and little egg nogs!
She loves all the blog styles and holiday headers,
By mid-week they'll be getting, oh, so much redder!
Such pretty decorations and crafts they did see,
It was hard to decide the most beautiful tree!
"It's time to head back to bed, I now fear;
For it's almost midnight, dawn soon will be here."
He bid her adieu, on the shelf, in his sleigh . . .
"Have a good night, and a happy Rednesday!"
