I'll never forget the snow storm that hit our village last Christmas. That morning, we'd woken up to a beautiful blue sky and though the forecast was predicting some snow fall, we all expected it to be a nice winter day. Therefore, after opening our presents with the rest of the family, my cousin Babette and I had decided to go for a walk. The snow started to fall heavily just before we made it home, and everyone burst out laughing when they saw how drenched we were! All through the night, we could hear the snow storm raging and in the morning, when I opened my curtains, the snow had completely covered up the windows! Thankfully, the sun was back the next day, and by midday, we were able to go outside for a giant snowball fight!
