Hello Tremor Family,

With Christmas quickly approaching, I figured it was time to hopefully give everyone a little laugh, because it’s been a pretty stressful year and everyone deserves to smile once in a while.

I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with the Christmas poem that begins “‘Twas the night before Christmas,” but I’m guessing that some of you aren’t aware of the actual title. It’s actually called A Visit from St. Nicholas, and was written by Clement Clark Morre. Below is my adaptation of his poem and I hope it’s seen more as an homage, and less as an abomination of a classic. I guess what I’m saying is that I hope the poor guy isn’t turning in his grave after knowing that this will be somewhere online for a long time.

Anyway, here’s my early Christmas gift to all of my Tremor forum friends and family. Merry Christmas all! 🥃🍺



A Visit From St. Tremorlas


‘Twas the night before Christmas, I’m awake in my house;

The computer was whirring, with every click of my mouse;

The tools were all lined, in my toolbox with care;

In hopes that St. Tremorlas soon would be there;

The kids were now sleeping, all snug in their beds;

While visions of Tremor rides danced in their heads;

And Mom in her Forum hoodie, our pup in her lap;

Was exhausted from wrapping and had stopped for a nap;

When out on the road there arose such a clatter;

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

Away to the window I ran in a hurry,

Peeked past the curtains, and tried not to worry.

The moon shining bright on the new-fallen snow,

Gave the same view as midday to objects below,

When what to my dumbfounded eyes did appear,

But a Rapid Red Tremor, with a trailer at rear;

So bright and so shiny, lights strung up on them;

I knew in a moment, it must be St. Trem!

Faster than ‘Stangs help came from the one ton,

The driver honked, and shouted, calling out to each one:

"Now, Ranger! Now, Transit! Now, Bronco and Fairlane!

On, Falcon! on, Focus!, Ranchero and Parklane!

Now get onto that porch! Climb over that wall!

Now dash away! Stash away! Then dash away all!"

Like snowflakes that dance in the wind as they fly,

When they meet with an updraft, and mount to the sky;

To the neighborhood houses those helpers they rose,

With their arms full of mods, and the tools that they chose.

And then, in a heartbeat, I heard in my house,

The quiet pitter-patter of steps, like a mouse.

I scratched at my head, then began to search around;

When into the room came St. Tremorlas with a bound.

He was dressed all in Ford gear, from his head to his foot,

And his clothes were all sullied with black diesel soot;

A bundle of goodies he had flung on his back,

And from out of the top poked a BuiltRight Bed Rack!

His eyes—pierced like knife point! His face, oh how hairy!

A chain stretched from his belt; to the wallet that he carry.

From the look on his face it was beginning to show,

That his time was running thin, and he needed to go;

A burnt out short stogie clenched tight in his teeth,

And brown juice from some Red Man, dribbled down underneath;

He had a weathered old face and a truck driver’s belly;

He was filthy and greasy, and honestly, smelly.

His muscles they flexed, when he reached to the shelf,

And placed an ARB dual kit, I could in-stall myself!

With a creak of his back and the squeak of a fart;

Soon, I knew, it was his time to depart;

He said not a thing, but reached into his sack,

And laid down more truck mods; then spun with a crack;

Then there he was stretching, to reach for the door;

But he stumbled and bumbled; and dropped toward the floor,

Then he shot across the yard, without leaving a track,

And appeared in that Tremor, with his helpers in back.

Then I heard him exclaim, as he roared out of sight—

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

Excellent job! I got a few chuckles.

Absolutely delightful! What a great way to get everyone in a merry mood. Thank you!🍻🥂🍷🥃
 
Well done.

Thank you to everyone who replied for the kind words. I thoroughly enjoyed messing around with the original and trying to create a similar tale with a new character. It gave me something to have kicking around in my head while I didn’t my daily routine and really didn’t take very long to put together. Some of you will probably laugh at this, but I was a huge fan of Weird Al Yankovic in my pre-teens and I was always amazed at his ability to make very impressive parodies/homages of original musical works. I guess his influence has stuck with me in one way or another.

I just want to again say thank you to @modified and his little helper elves @Driftwood and @ccw for putting together and maintaining this wonderful little space where all of us misfits can be brought together from all over the country (and at this point the world) to celebrate a bunch of awesome people doing really cool things to a TOTALLY SICK ASS TRUCK!

Merry Christmas Tremor Family!

Merry Christmas to you @Sludgemonkey44

This hit close to home for me and brought back good memories... For years at work me and a buddy would take Christmas songs and rewrite them to whatever was applicable throughout the previous year in our position - there was always more than enough material, hahaha. We would then perform them at our end of year work party. We both have since moved on to other jobs.

Glad to see others willing to share their creativity in this way!!!
