twelve days of christmas…in portland

It’s the holiday season…time to take a few minutes from our busy work days to wish one another well, to embrace the people we love, and to celebrate some of our favorite things from the past year.

I was planning to write a serious top-ten list that referenced professional affiliations and personal achievements. But it appears that holiday silliness is infectious. So here are my Portland-ized lyrics for The Twelve Days of Christmas. You’ll notice that the lyrics also contain links. You can click on the links to visit some really wonderful Websites that make Portland merry everyday.

And a hummingbird in a cherry tree.
