    'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the CW house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a COMPUTER mouse;
    The stockings were hung by the VICTORIAN STONE chimney with care,
    In hopes that St. HUNTER ( CW EDITOR) would soon be there;
    The children were nestled all in their VINTAGE METAL beds;
    While visions of COLLECTIBLES danced in their heads;
    And mamma in her PJ'S and I in my COLLECTORS SPORT BALL cap,
    Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap,
    When out IN INTERNET WORLD there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like HARD-DRIVE flash,
    Tore open the EDWARDIAN shutters and threw up the sash.
    The moon on the breast of the new-POSTED snow,
    Gave a lustre of midday to ALL MY COLLECTIBLES below,
    When what to my wondering OLD eyes did appear,
    But a miniature ADVERTISING sleigh and eight tiny JOHN-DEERES.
    As little old COLLECTOR NOT so lively and quick,
    I knew in a moment he must be COLLECTORS WEEKLY St Nick.
    More rapid than eagles his POSTS - - they came,
    And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:

    NOW toolate, NOW DeanteakS, NOW vetraio50, NOW Trey. NOW valentino97, NOW Manikin, NOW AzTom, NOW gargoylecollector, NOW Jewels.

    To the top of the porch! to the top of the PICTURE COVERED wall!
    Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
    As leaves that before A GARAGE SALE fly,
    When they meet with ANOTHER COLLECTOR A CRASH IN THE sky;
    So up to the housetop the coursers they flew
    With A sleigh full of VINTAGE TIN toys, and St. Nicholas too—
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof --
