Thanksgiving and Black Friday Haiku

Thanksgiving
Plates and pans galore.
Holiday over, snack made,
Cozy couch, movies.

Black Friday
They’re all out shopping,
Fighting and buying, stressing.
I’m home, warm, happy.

I usually don’t participate in Black Friday, and this year, I’m using the extra day to further my writing exposure. And snack on leftovers.

I was thinking about why I enjoy Thanksgiving, and realized that I enjoy the cooking and eating, but most of all, I enjoy the hours after it has ended and everyone has gone home. I sit with my mom and dad, eating warm popcorn smothered in melting chocolate, and watch the movie March of the Wooden Soldiers starring Laurel and Hardy. My favorite part of any holiday tends to be the before and after.

What about you? Do you have special traditions that you look forward to more than the holiday itself?
