Happy Easter 2016

Today is Easter Sunday.   The reason for today is the Resurrection of Jesus.

Easter is a very serious holiday, but we also have a lot of fun with it also.  The Easter Bunny comes to our houses and brings us colored Easter eggs, soft toys in the form of bunnies, ducks and chickens,  and every Easter basket also includes some of our favorite candy.

Often the Easter Bunny brings other favorite treats for our enjoyment.   Flowers are a popular Easter gift also.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, wish you all a very Happy Easter.

Christmas Decorations in my Neighborhood

It is getting close to Christmas.  I, Zeb the Duck, am excited about Christmas.  But, I don’t really know much about it yet.  I am seeing different things appearing in people’s yards.  These are Christmas decorations.

These are some of the things I noticed.  This is Santa Claus in a sleigh.

Mom says Santa Claus rides in a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer and brings presents to people.  Santa seems nice, but looks a little different.

Here is another Santa Claus with sleigh and reindeer.

I like Santa

Also some big presents.

These all look like fun things.

A manger or Nativity Scene seems a little more serious.  This is the reason for Christmas.  A baby named Jesus was born.  This baby grew up to be a special man and he changed the world.

Maybe more about this later.

I am curious and excited about Christmas.  I hope you see decorations and like them.  What is your favorite Christmas story or memory?  This is all new to me but I like it.
