The ramblings of things that make me…um, well…me.
Hey there, Hipsters!
The tree is up and the Christmas cards have been sent.
We’ve even watched most of the old school Rankin/Bass movies.
Mr Book Hipster and I have been slowly knocking things off the Kidlet’s wish list and there is a nice big box under the tree for him too. 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I love seeing all the lights and decorations everywhere. I can’t stop staring at my tree. I just love how it sparkles!
And I absolutely love Christmas music. Right now I’m addicted to the new Michael Bublé Christmas CD. I’ve been listening to it every day on my way to and from work.
Along with music, one of the best things to do this time of year is read TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS.
While I had a few moments of quiet time today at work, I decided that I wanted to write a Christmas poem. Ideas were not coming to mind in the form of a big poem, so I changed it up to a haiku and this is what I came up with:
White lights on the tree
Your beauty brightens the night
Silent. Just waiting.
Whatcha think? I thought it described one of my favorite things about this time of year. 🙂
Now, why am I telling you this? Well, to be honest, I do have ulterior motives. I had a crazy idea in my mind after I wrote my haiku…I wanted to see if YOU could write one too, about the holidays. A Haiku Holiday!
I’m making this into my first official giveaway!
As a way to make it fun, I am offering up something in exchange…something crafty!
Write your own “Holiday Haiku” in the comments section of this blog post by the end of the day on December 25th to enter.
You know how to write a Haiku, right? If not, click HERE to find out. I’ll pick my favorite one on the 26th and that person will win a handmade crochet item from me. Item to be determined once the winner is chosen…but I’m thinking a scarf or something equally easy to make…we’ll see…I can be flexible. 😉
Sounds easy enough, right?
I wanna know what makes you feel holiday-ish…in haiku form…
Ready? Set? Haiku!
