The postman's name is Mr. Bob. He is delivering Christmas cards and packages. It is winter, December 24, 2016 or maybe 1890 in the country. There is snow on the ground, the wind is blowing and there are no leaves left on the trees. Mr. Bob is delivering a puzzle to Billy. Billy lives with his mother, father and sister Marianne. They have a dog named Pete. Mr. Bob is smiling because it is Christmas time and he is happy delivering packages and making people happy. Billy's family is happy because it is holiday time. Billy's mother will answer the door. The door is decorated with a beautiful Christmas wreath. Billy's father is taking a nap. He is tired from working hard the night before. He is a butcher and cut up a lot of meat to use for the holidays. Billy's mother will hand Mr. Bob a Christmas card with money inside and she will say "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."
