Remember when you were a kid, and you'd look out the window on the way to bed, and it would be snowing?
Great big flakes.
And you hoped it would snow A LOT, but you didn't want to jinx it, and then when you woke up there was snow everywhere?
That deep, fluffy snow that coated everything and made you want to run outside and make forts and snow angels?
But first, you crawled back into your warm bed for a while,
because how often did you get to sleep late on a school day, after all?
And when you finally got out of bed, you threw on your boots,
and that scarf your Mom knit for you
and ran outside to build a snow family?
And you realized you were cold and wet, so you went inside, flung off your wet winter clothes,
and made a cup of cocoa...
...to drink in front of the fireplace?
And you grabbed that last candy cane you were hoarding in your stocking to use as a stirrer?
Then you spent a blissful hour lying on the warm rug, reading your Calvin and Hobbes books?
And when you were done you played your favorite video game for a while, like, I don't know...

And by then you were warm enough that you had to go outside again, to go ice skating with your friends?
And it was so much fun everything felt magical?
Well, that's a Snow Day.
