'Twas the day before the giveaways and all through the site...
Santas were dancing on a background of white.
The Mac fans were reading in hopes of some news
While the iPhone and iPod fans sought out reviews.
And then came the sound that we wanted to hear
From the man in the red suit with lots of reindeer.
So some friendly advice to all I'll relay,
There's one thing that you can do before our giveaway.
Whether a joiner or whether a quitter,
You'll want to follow @applethoughts on good old Twitter.
Tomorrow we give you a tweet to reshare,
And our editors' eyes will be watching you there.
For some of you tweeting, a gift will be coming.
For those that ignore, you won't be in the running.
Now go forth and join and read our opining,
and remember the rules, most important, no whining.
Multiple giveaways starting tomorrow...
And given at random to those who follow.
Instructions are coming, so please watch this space,
Randomness, surprises, and giveaways are all on their way.
But for now I must go and I must prepare
and make sure our prizes are all wrapped with care.
It's Christmas at Apple Thoughts, your favorite Mac site,
and the gifts are for you, Merry Christmas, good night.
