MetaEzra Holiday Contest: Holiday Haikus

We like contests here at MetaEzra. And while we haven't won the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest yet, that doesn't stop us from trying week-in, week-out. And we bet our readership likes contests too -- all 1,000 of you average weekly readers who we know are out there.

Loyal readers will recall that a couple years ago we offered our very first holiday contest, which resulted in a rather humorous winner.

So here's a Cornell-centric holiday contest for our readership to enjoy this season: Come up with your own Cornell-themed holiday haiku.

Haikus should be:

-- In traditional 5-7-5 format.
-- Holiday, or at least winter, themed.
-- Related in some way to Cornell and/or Ithaca.

All readers of this website, Cornellian and non-Cornellian are eligible. Entries must be received no later than December 31st, 2008. Multiple submissions are accepted. By submitting an entry you agree to its possible publication on this website and elsewhere. A yet to be determined prize will be awarded to the best submission.

Email your haikus to editor(at)metaezra(dot)com, with the title 'MetaEzra Holiday Contest'.

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and a happy (and healthy!) New Year to your and your loved ones this holiday season. All of my best to you and yours.
