Arguably, the most commonly used poetic form, the traditional haiku consist of 17 “on” (Japanese for syllable) within three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 respectively. In 2009, we ventured to write one Christmas Haiku a day for a complete year. Aided with the help of our staff, collectors, and friends, we were happy to have come up with 365 Christmas Haikus for every day of the year! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
