In den Winterferien (Topic: Winter)
“It snowed!” Jonas called in excitement as he looked out the window that morning. He had come to the mountains with his friends Sophie, Karl, and Felix for the winter holidays, but up to now there hadn’t been enough snow to do any winter sports. But now everything was white, 50 centimetres of new snow! It must have been snowing all night!
Quickly, Jonas woke his friends; they could hardly believe their eyes. “Finally!” they exclaimed, and although they were usually late risers, that morning they couldn’t possibly stay in their warm beds any longer. They wanted to get outside in the snow as soon as possible. Even the cold didn’t bother them, because there was so much to do. First the friends built a snowman, then they made some snowballs and had a snowball fight. They went down the mountain on their sleds and snowboards and Sophie had even brought along her ice skates.
The children weren’t the only ones who were excited about the snow. In the distance, you could see skiers heading up the mountainside in the chairlift to come racing back down the slopes. There was even a polar bear on skis. Only the snowman was shivering in the cold and wishing for summer. He had a cold and was feeling uncomfortably chilly and huge icicles were hanging from his nose.
Huh? A snowman with a cold, and a polar bear on skis? Feeling irritated, Jonas turned over. Oh no! He was still laying in bed, it had all been a dream! Disappointed, he peered out the window, which looked out over the street. But wait a moment! Everything was white outside!
“It snowed!” Jonas exclaimed happily, and quickly woke his friends.
