‘Twas the week of Christmas at Festival Foods


‘Twas the week of Christmas,

And all through the state

Families made grocery lists,

And shopped for food to fill their Christmas dinner plate.


The stores were decorated with red, green, and gold

To spread holiday cheer

And Christmas music was playing overhead,

For all to hear.


The shelves were stocked full,

Associates filled the aisles

Ready to greet, serve, and assist guests,

While wearing festive uniforms and smiles.


Guests wandered the aisles

Filling their carts with milk, eggs, and bread

Then added fruit trays, candy canes, chocolates, and beverages

To prepare for the celebrations ahead.

French Fried onions, egg nog, cookies, and more

Were checked off the list one by one

As families moved quickly

To get their grocery shopping done.

When their lists were completed,

And carts filled to the top

Guests approached the checkouts,

Excited this was their last stop!

The checkouts sparkled with garland, greens, and ornaments

Staffed by cashiers and baggers grinning from ear to ear

Who were eager to help guests

During the most wonderful time of the year!


“How are you?” “Merry Christmas!”

“Enjoy your family time!”

Were the conversations that could be heard

At any checkout line.

By 5:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve

The store was empty — what a sight!

Before turning off the lights and locking the doors, employees could be heard shouting

“Merry Christmas to all … and to all a good night!”
