The Twelve Days of Fedmas 2015

imageDespite all of the slings and arrows directed at the federal workforce, America’s public servants go to work every day to serve the American people, and most of them do it very well. Thanks to each and every one of you, and a Happy Hanukkah (belated), Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa and Happy Holidays to Federal employees, retirees and their families everywhere!

Here is my own version of the Twelve Days of Christmas, written in 2014, but updated with even better gifts for 2015….
