‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the store

Not one employee was stirring, the sales were no more;


The security tags were placed on the merchandise with care,

In hopes that thieves would stay away from there;


All the quad wraps had been carefully applied to designer wear 

While the bottle collars were an answer to a long-time prayer


Throughout the holiday season, theft slowed down

It was almost like every thief had left town 


Loss prevention professionals were nestled all snug in their beds;

While visions of reduced shrinkage danced in their heads;


And the owner in his home, with a dog in his lap,

Had just settled his brain for a long evening’s nap,


When out on the store floor, there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my office to see what was the matter.


Towards the electronics, I flew like a flash,

Went straight to the high-valued items with a brash 


Heaving a sigh of relief while slowing my pace 

All the cable locks were safely in place 


Then suddenly I saw a red figure near the tripods

It was a large, rounded man holding Apple AirPods 


He asked if the sale ended or was it too late to buy

But he had to stop when he saw the great deal in the sky 


I sold him the AirPods and removed the lock

He was gone so quick, leaving me in shock


It took a moment for everything to click 

Then I knew he must have been St. Nick.


I ran outside the store for a quick glance. 

Not wanting to miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance.


“Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!


I could hardly believe that even on Christmas Eve

Not one single thief made it past me 


As I stood there, arms crossed with my astonished grin

I felt thankful for Product Protection Solutions.


Then I heard St. Nick exclaim, as he drove out of sight—

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
