‘Twas the night before Christmas in the Crimmins’ house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas would soon be there;
The girls were all hanging out in their beds,
With iPods loudly playing music in their heads.
And all of the presents were perfectly wrapped,
So a glass of wine was poured for my night cap.
When I thought of all of the gifts from numerous places,
From coats with bright buttons and sneakers with laces.
The family will be so happy, indeed,
With all the items they so desperately need.
I began to think of all the work that was done,
To make this Christmas a special one.
The shopping and sales where I had some luck,
From Nordstrom’s to Walmart with a stop at Starbucks.
And then I remember the most wonderful thing,
Most of these places were not just a fling.
I knew in a moment it must be for real,
These great companies are part of the deal.
And I whistled, and shouted, and knew them by name,
For they are part of the investment diversification game.
For most of these companies I own (just a bit)
As my portfolio is filled with most of these hits.
The great companies of the world are part of my plan,
So with all of my Christmas shopping I became a great fan.
For planning and diversifying are definitely in style,
There is no need to sit and wait for a while.
For planning is what we do best,
So you don’t need to worry about the rest.
Just leave it to us (we surely won’t mind)
And we promise to always remain kind.
One more thing before you leave this site —
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
