Here’s a poem to commemorate the day:

can sort of be like,
a maamoul cookie.


maamoul cookies,
are really hard to make,
if you’ve never done it.

1400 or so,
it probably gets easier.

maamoul cookies,
have a surprise inside

There’s the outer cookie part,
and then the sweet date part inside.

A blog can be like that.

The first posts you find,
might informative,
or educational.

If you did a little deeper though,
you can find posts that are,
and inspirational,
on all sorts of different blogs.

maamoul cookies,
are great to share.

doesn’t like,
maamoul cookies?

can be like that.

You can share your blog,
with so many people,
and you can share blogs you like,
with your friends.

maamoul cookies,
go great with tea.

Of course,
you can have a sip,
while you read (or write as is happing now),
a blog.

can be like,
a maamoul cookie.

Take a break,
have a bite,
and enjoy.
