Of course, the most anticipated part of everyone's Christmas each year is when the whole family sits around the fire together and creates Holiday Haiku. I'm sure all of you can remember when you used to sit at the little kid's table working on very basic verse, and then there was that moment you'll never forget...when Dad said, "Little Johnny, or Jimmy, I can't remember which one you are, but anyway it's time you moved up to the Bigs. Here, sit by me, and let's count out syllables the way grown-ups do..." No, you just don't ever forget your first Grown-Up Table Haiku.



So, in the spirit of all Timeless Holiday Traditions, I thought it appropriate to share some simple verses with all of us. If you're inspired, then may your creativity flow forward, and add to our chain of Holiday Magic. Good times, good times.





Plump, jolly old elf,

He sneaks down the chimney pipe.

Burning fat smells bad.



Christmas dinner joy!

The table lit with candles.

Grandma's wig on fire.



The best time of year,

The Christmas cakes and candies!

I can't snap my pants.

Was your family

a bit touched yourself?

This Christmas morning
All I want beneath the tree
Is two happy kids.

Some market commentary haikus...
 
Bears out of their caves...
Help! Help! The sky is falling!
Anarchy coming!
 
Bears puff out their chests...
Economy recovers!
Dumbass bears retreat.
 
Fastcar bloviates.
Loves to hear his voice, although...
Exposed, he escapes.

I like, I like.  Although I'm firing a three round burst of 7.62 across the bow of your Indyone Somali pirate boat to discourage non-Christmas haiku hijacking attempts.
