New Years Day

“Happy New Year!” exclaimed Fawn, at five o’clock New Years Day morning.

“Oh Fawn,” said Spot. “Go back to bed. It is too early.”

“But Spot,” said Fawn. “I want to enjoy the day. It is a brand new year.”

“Fawn,” said Spot. “You have the whole year to enjoy it. Please go back to bed.”

“I’m going outside,” said Fawn.

“Dress warm,” said Spot, getting out of bed. “It is going to be cold outside.”

“I will,” said Fawn.

Fawn went outside and even though it was cold, it was a beautiful day. Fawn went down by the lake.

“I’m going to take the polar bear dip,” said Fawn to himself.

Quickly Fawn took off his winter coat, hat and scarf and he plunged into the lake. He could only stand the cold, cold water for about five seconds before he had to get out. Fawn tripped on a rock in the water and he couldn’t get out of the water.

“Here,” came a familiar voice. “Grab this piece of rope.”

Fawn grabbed onto the piece of rope that Spot handed him. Spot pulled with all her might. Fawn finally got onto the shore and Spot wrapped him with a blanket that she had brought. Fawn stood shivering but he was so glad that he was alright.

“How did you know I was going to do the polar bear dip?” asked Fawn.

“I saw you heading for the lake,” said Spot. “And I thought to myself Fawn, lake, New Years Day.”

“Well I’m so glad you were here to pull me out,” said Fawn. “Do you know how cold that water is? Another second I’d have frozen.”

“I know,” said Spot. “That’s why I came running. Now, get back up into the barn and let’s celebrate New Years Day properly.”

“Okay,” said Fawn.

As soon as Fawn got to the barn, he went straight back to bed and he slept for a good couple of hours. Spot also went back to sleep too and that is how Fawn and Spot spent the rest of New Years Day.


 

Moral of this Story:

  • Polar Bear dips on New Years Day aren’t for everyone.
  • Example: Fawn wanted to do a polar bear dip but he wasn’t planning on tripping on a rock preventing him from getting out of the water.
