eMailing Joy WORLDWIDE

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except for my mouse;
My wife she awoke to ask what was the matter,
'Twas not Santa Claus, 'twas my keyboard clatter.

One would think that my friends would all be fast asleep,
But why does my email go click-click and beep-beep?
'Cause elsewhere in the world it's tomorrow already
And my flood of email comes strong, fast and steady.

My eNews buddies are browsing and leaping
They still cruise the Web while others are sleeping;
With most people in bed, all cozy and curled,
Our eNews goes click-click and changes the world

While the old-fashioned types still send their regards
By snail mail with postage and hard-copy Christmas cards,
My cyberspace friends simply copy and paste
Their cute email greetings, just in time with no waste.

I type "Froehliche Weihnachten" for my German friends,
My "Feliz Navidad" Spanish greetings extends,
And my English buddies get a "Chin-chin old chap!"
"Put a shrimp on the barbie!" is my Down-under rap.

While my wife sends her few cards with stamps and lick-lick.
I send off four thousand email cards with a click;
The answers come back at almost speed of light,
That’s what makes my email go beep-beep in the night.

But please, cyber friends, don’t email too much;
Don't just have a virtual Christmas ... go touch!
I wish you all a good time and lots of good cheer
To all a good Christmas! And a Happy New Year!

wishing you all the most blessed and a happy Christmas ever...........
