The SNAP Learning Christmas SALE Poem

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through our site

Not a creature was buying, not one little bite!

The offers were swung by our marketers with care

In hope that good teachers soon would be there.

The children could read, all snug in their beds

And interact with the books, just like in their heads!

But no one came by, as the holidays grew near

And I, in my office, sat shivering in fear.

Then outside my window, I saw in the sky…

None other than St. Nick! (boy, that guy could really fly!)

He waved a hello, and then shouted some advice:

“Enjoy the holidays, just lower your price!”

And so I ran to our team, opened the door with a BAM!

“Take 25% off our SNAP Reading Program!”

The team shouted with joy, and danced in good cheer

Who doesn’t love a sale at this time of the year?

So hurry and buy, but please do remember

This offer will end on 30th of December.

And so we have come to the end of this tale,

Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy SNAP Learning sale!
