- This is our annual reminder that July 6 is International Kissing Day and July 7 is Chocolate Day. Find out much more and check out related haiku and senryu at the f/k/a post "let's celebrate kissing and chocolate" (July 5, 2008). Despite what the nuns told us in grammar school, kisses and chocolate are heavenly. "simply senryu" is celebrating, too, today.

her chocolate breath
mingles with mine -
