The mailman's name is George or Mr. Smith. His bale is full. He's delivering letters, envelopes and packages... one really BIG package to a family at Christmas time. The mailman is maybe delivering candy or toys for children but he definitely has letters from a uniformed man overseas. He KNOWS the uniformed man!
We can smell the snow. It snowed big the day before but there's no snow on the mailman so we know it's not snowing now. The snowstorm has ended and the snow is deep but it's beginning to melt. The air is cold and dry. It's a sunny day and the mail got through!
The mailman has a nice face. He's smiling. He looks good. He looks cocky. He has a nice and close family.
He's standing at the door of a house. The door has a beautiful wreath with a big red bow...
a big red bow!
The bow has a picture of a woman in a dress in the wreath and she has a handle. The wreath with a red bow smells pretty and it makes us feel happy.
It makes the mailman feel happy.
We can hear the sound of Christmas bells, church bells and jingle bells in town.
We hear Christmas music!
There aren't too many people at the house. There aren't any children running out of the house to collect the packages.
There might be a cat at home.
There's lots of Christmas spirit there in the house. We know this because of all the wonderful decorations.
Right before the mailman arrived at the door of the house he met an old friend and they were telling stories of when they were children - of the early days.
The mailman might be getting a gift of money from the family for Christmas or maybe the neighbors left the mailman some packages!
Afterwards, the mailman might have said, "Go away and come another day!"
