A Happy Day
Winter came and the first snow began to fall . It was early Saturday morning . When I got up and looked out of the window , I saw trees , roofs and the ground all covered with snow .

When we got to the hill , we started making snow balls at once , Suddenly a snow ball hit me in the face . How cold ! When I had made enough snow balls , I began to throw them at my enemies .
We threw snow ball at each other ; we kept laughing and shouting . What great fun ! What great fun ! We were children again . We did not stop enjoying ourselves until we could not see each other clearly for the dark .
On our way home , we were still talking about our snow fight . The wind was blowing hard , but we did not feel the cold . What a happy day !
