The 12 Days of Successmas

Recently, the original text from the the “Twelve Days of Christmas” was found in a an old filing cabinet dating back to 19th century. It seems an early entrepreneur wanted others to learn his twelve best ideas, too.

    This was the best Blog written so far in relating to Christmas. Awesome, we will definitly use this in our Office. I mostly enjoyed singing it with the melody of the 12 days of Christmas. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wow! Thanks for the great comment!

  • Well done Matthew.

    And now for your next challenge, let’s see you write a parody of REM’s “It’s the End of the World”, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”¬†or Bob Dylan’s “Mediterranean Homesick Blues.”

    Happy Holidays

  • Ok… Look for them in the near future!
