T’was the Night Before Christmas
T’was the night before Christmas, and all throughout Workplace
Every participant was posting at a furious pace.
Daily Blog Posts was booming, each submission full of wit,
Sharing wisdom and tips, hoping for a massive traffic hit.
Today I Learned, blowing up just as much
With people sharing about bitcoin and diet and such.
All Participants and Alumni, the lobby if you will
Holds photo of Praxis Swag & Christmas traditions. This group is never still.
Then from my Slack window, there was the notification knocking
(When you work remotely, this is our form of talking)
Over to Slack I turned my attention
To see what message had my name mentioned.
The #random thread had messages streaming in
Typical team shenanigans, maybe influenced by holiday gin.
I watched as the story continued to unfold
A new take on Santa and his reindeer, breaking the mold.
For Santa, the clear choice was our fearless leader.
The competition Isaac faced for claiming the spot was meager.
The team were the reindeer, making this company fly
First up is TK, what a swell guy.
He listens to Christmas music all through the year
Only having people to share it with when the holiday draws near.
Then there’s Cameron, our resident grump.
Don’t let him fool you, he’s usually only acting down in the dump.
You can find Derek writing content at the speed of light,
And if you want to defend Bitcoin, he’s down for the fight.
Chuck is our resident expert on almost anything you can think:
Websites, books, cocktails, or how to make a sausage link.
Ryan is from Canada, which is apparently still a country.
He’s a World Wanderer, going on adventures, at times including bungee.
Laurie is a customer service and Instagram pro.
She also writes killer blog posts that make you say “Woah!”
Brian is our Joseph, an interpreter of dreams.
The amount of paper needed to write his life story would be reams upon reams.
Hannah is a creative: writing and photographing her life.
Her works saves participants and staff countless strife.
I am happiest when playing with data.
Even though Salesforce and Excel have many a hater.
That is our team, the best the land,
And I challenge you to find a group anywhere that is as grand.
Add in our participants and alumni, and the competition becomes sparse.
And to think the program was initially thought to be a farce!
I am thankful for this group, during the season of all things merry and bright.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
