Nothing captures the excitement and wonder of the holiday season quite like ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas.’ For me, the overall tone of the carol evokes much of the fun and frenzy that occur during 12 days in a PR agency office.

Let’s try our hand at it, shall we?

On my first day in PR my efforts brought to me: a writer who said “stop bugging me.”

On my second day in PR my efforts brought to me: two trade shows and a writer who said “stop bugging me.”

On my third day in PR my efforts brought to me: three client meetings, two trade shows and a writer who said “stop bugging me.”

On my fourth day in PR my efforts brought to me: four press releases, three client meetings, two trade shows and a writer who said “stop bugging me.”

On my fifth day in PR my efforts brought to me: five Samantha Jones references,
