Boxing Day Limericks

December 26, 2010

Good news, everyone!

Because it’s Boxing Day, and because I’m still stuffed with turkey (not stuffed with stuffing, though; I’ve never much cared for it), I’ve decided that today should be another Limerick Day.



The day after Christmas means rest,

For Santa, exhausted from fest.

He shook out his boot

And got covered in soot,

The residue of his great quest.


And now all the little elves cheer,

For Boxing Day’s finally here!

They go south to the malls,

Clearing out of the halls,

To pick up some toys for next year.


There once was a shopper named Ted,

Determined to shop with his head.

He had a long list

Full of things that he’d missed,

But on seeing the crowds, well, he fled.


There once was a strange little cat,

Who stetched himself out on the mat.

He got into a box

Full of new Christmas socks,

And ignored all his catnip at that.


Who likes Boxing Day most of all?

Not the shoppers who crowd every mall.

Not the retail purveyors,

Nor the bargain surveyors,

But Rudolph, asleep in his stall.






  1. Ooo! I love that! 😀 And I’m glad I’m not the only one who uses the word, “huzzah”! 😉

    • Huzzah! 😛

  2. Fun post! Thanks, Arvik. 😉

  3. My favorite is Ted the shopper; I can identify with the desire to flee! We have an elderly woman who attends our writer’s group tentatively; she writes limericks and feels they are not ‘real’ writing. We are slowly convincing her that the ability to write limericks is a gift not all of us share.
