Dictionary.com’s Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas at Dictionary.com . . .

Not a laptop was stirring . . . just some
RAM
 and some
ROM

New words have been logged by our
lexicographers
with care
They will post them online in the new year to share

The writers were sleeping with tablets on their right
In case new inspiration should arrive in the night

When out in our lobby arose such a noise!
It must be
IT
with some marvelous new toys

New ways for
analysis
and word
exploration
(plus 
techie
gear!)
To help us craft witty slideshows well into the new year

We were mistaken it seems though because it wasn’t IT
It was
Santa
and his team of reindeer, hoping to expand their vocabulary 

The jolly, old man visited each employee space
He left something for all, then vanished . . . without a trace

Real or imagined, the sight was
wondrous
and great
Now, it seems pretty clear we must go look up the word
hallucinate
.

Happy holidays!
