Limerick Challenge Week 43: Celebrations
I shall begin this post by apologizing for the delay in posting, but I must say that I could not post because I was busy having fun yesterday, after all, it was my birthday and I decided to take a break from blogging and writing to spend time with my son and family.
Needless to say, I had a wonderful time! Check out the very special cake my sister designed for me, according to her the three pictures in the cake summarizes my life! 😀
Coming back to the limericks, I must say that I love love loved the very different takes I got to read from last week’s challenge. Very cleverly done!
If you have not already done so, you can click here to view all the limerick submissions for the last week.
Now, let’s take a look at the Top 5 limericks from Week 42 challenge.
The limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Jay of Running in my Head!
An Old-Fashioned Diet
Said Leo to Luther: “I’ve a Diet;
I insist: you really must try it!”
When to Worms Luther went,
his patience was spent,
for it wasn’t that kind of a diet.
Congratulations, Jay – the Limerick Superstar of the week!
The homonym ‘Draft’ used by Nicola of Sometimes Stellar Storyteller was absolutely stellar as was the heartwarming limerick by Helene of Mother Willow.
There were some really clever homonyms used by Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking and Alistair of Al the Author.
Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 43 Challenge.
The prompt for this week is ‘Celebrations’. This week pick a celebration or a festival of your choice and write a limerick about it.
I am excited about this week’s challenge and look forward to reading your limericks for this prompt!

Finally, here is my take on the prompt:
The birthday cake was blue
It had candles too
All 24 of them bright
But my son cried out “That’s not right!”
“There must be more candles anew!”
Oh wow . . . thanks!
Happy Belated Birthday! Wishing you much laughter & joy the rest of this year!
Thank you for the kind wishes 😊
Happy birthday! Twenty-four candles are enough.
Haha! It is enough, right!?! Thank you for making my day, Frank 😊
Belated Best Wishes for your birthday and the coming year!
Thank you Delyn 😊
Most welcome 🙂
Happy belated birthday, Rashmi!
Thank you Magarisa 😊
:):):) your limerick is good. That cake looks very yummy. I’m glad you enjoyed your B’day.
It was a yummy treat indeed! Thank you Masi 😊
Glad to know you had a good day. Diwali has always been my favourite festival followed by Christmas. Have some really special memories for both. Am tempted to participate in this one.
I hope you do! Thank you dear 😊
Happy birthday Rashmi, the cake looks awesome, I’m sure it’s delicious too. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Ranu 😊 it was a yummy cake 🎂
My congratulations to the winners of week 42 limerick challenge, you guys are awesome.I missed the boat, so decided to post mine later.
Thank you, Ranu. Did you post a limerick for homonym prompt? You must share the link here.
Congratulations to the winners! Belated birthday wishes to you Rashmi! I’m sure you had a wonderful day. May the happiness last throughout your life! 🙂
Thank you so much 😊
I was late, I was working on the limerick, there were so many options, I kept changing, then took a break and when I woke up the deadline had passed. So on Sunday I published one and I knew I couldn’t use the blue froggie’s help, so just posted it on my blog. The entries were remarkable, I read some of them. Thank you. 🙂
Hi Ranu, yea the blue froggy stops accepting links after 6pm on Fridays (except this week where I am keeping it open till Saturday given that I posted the challenge late) which is why you were unable to link it up.
Not a problem, you can always drop a link into the comments if you missed the deadline to link it up. That way I will know that I have to check out your blog too. 😊
Happy belated birthday!! <3
Thank you 😊
Congratulations to all the winners, another great week!
Thank you, Diane 😊
Belated birthday, Rashmi . Have a wonderful year ahead. The cake is quite creative 👍
Thank you dear 😊
Congratulatons to all the winners.. 🙂
Belated birthday wishes to you.. 🙂 Celebration it is! Your limerick is nice.. 🙂 Will do mine soon.. 🙂
Thank you, Prakash 😊. I look forward to your limerick.
Again I had fun participating in your challenge. Rashmi, Thanks for providing interesting prompts.
And I had a lot of fun reading all the limericks. Thank you for participating 😊
I’m not sure I’ll get time to write a celebrations limerick this week… but this one’s just for you <3
For Rashmi's birthday treat,
Her sister made something to eat
It looked mighty fine
The artwork divine
And the taste just couldn't be beat!
Aww…that’s a beautiful limerick, Al. You just made my day! 😍😍
You’re most welcome! 😀

Hey, what a wonderful thing you have going on here. Would love to join in. Belated happy birthday and your sis got a lovely cake…thank god, you didn’t post pics of what lies under all that white goodness… i am on a strict diet right now! 🙂 Love the limerick you wrote; this is exactly why i don’t put any candles on my cake 😉
Hey, thank you! Glad you enjoyed the post and found the challenge interesting.
Finally, I let only 3 candles stay on my cake, my son wanted more of course 😉
I look forward to reading your limerick this weekend. 🙂
