Christmas is difficult for me because I am allergic to pine trees, fir trees, poinsettias, and all the scented products that are everywhere.

I wrote a short series of haiku on Twitter that show what happens to me as I try and recover from Christmas allergens.

I am awake now

Because my eyes are itching

Lost a day somewhere

Sicker than I thought I was
