The Month Before Christmas…

The Month Before Christmas…

The Month Before Christmas

Twas the month before Christmas and all through the Co-op

All the employees were stirring, and probably some mice too

The stockings were hung, in the offices with care

In hopes that Santa Dave would soon be there

The staff were all nestled, all snug in their departments

While vision of sugar cookies and gifts danced in their heads

They are stocking the shelves, propane being scheduled and delivered

They are getting ready for Christmas and a long cold winter

All at once, out in the yard, there arose such a clatter

The employees ran to the doorway to see what was the matter

Away to the doors, they flew like a flash

Tore open the door and threw up their hands

The sun was shining over the freshly fallen snow

They wondered who just showed, with a sleigh in tow

When what to their wondering eyes should appear

A full-size sleigh and eight full size reindeer

With a little old driver, so ready to rave.

They know in a minute in must be Santa Dave

More rapid that eagles his course they came

And he whistled and shouted and called them by name

On Linda, On Amy, On Dave and Jackie

On Ruby, On Karen, on Beth On Susie!

On Bo, On Steve, on Thad, On Mike, On Jay,

On Hunter, on Sam on Rob, On Daniel,

On Austin, On Joel On Brandon

We’re heading to the main entrance of the Co-op.

dash away now!  dash away now!

They all entered with happiness in their eyes.

Where they found all kinds of presents, something for all

They grabbed snow salt and shovels, candles and puzzles too

They crammed them in their sleigh, with Santa Dave too

But more was needed, to fill up the sleigh

They found candles and tools, body soaps and lotions.

Outside décor, dog and cat toys, stocking stuffers and more

Along with building kits for kids, along with so much more

They found bird feeders galore, and bird feed too

Wood stove pellets, dog food, animal feed and more

There were lots of fasteners, animal food and seeds

The cutest cards ever, gloves, mittens and more

There’s just so much you can find in this store,

A perfect place to shop during the winter and more

You can come in and browse, look all over the aisles

We guarantee you will find something, in our co-op store.

SO, Santa Dave was happy, but he spoke not a word

He filled all the employees’ stockings then turned with a jerk

And laying his finger aside of his nose

And gave a big nod, out the front door he goes!

He ran to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle.

And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle

We all hear him exclaim, as he drove out of sight

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
