‘A Factory Floor Christmas’

By December 24, 2006General

Among the many things for which we give thanks this Christmas is that Carter Wood joined our ranks this year. He came first as an NAM speech writer but then we conscripted him into blog service as well. He has risen to the occasion and you have seen many of his posts here this year, all well-written, pithy and smart. (Unlike some others….)

On a rare slow day, or in a sleepless night, he composed this great manufacturing version of Clement Clark Moore’s “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” While Carter’s off enjoying a well-deserved Christmas break with his family, we wanted to post it here on Christmas Eve, for your enjoyment. In years to come, we can see this overtaking the original — being read by manufacturers the world over to their little ones as they slumber with great expectation of the great manufactured things to come.

Factory Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
