For just about every kid on Earth, there are many reasons to love a good snow day ' no school, no homework, and no limit to the possibilities. But for the Zee Zees, who came to our Earth from a galaxy far, far away, their first snow day was extra exciting. You see on Planet Z, they don't have winters. Being a tropical climate, they had never even seen snow before, so you can imagine their surprise when they woke up early one morning to find thousands upon thousands of tiny frozen flakes falling from the sky. As a big group of excited Zee Zees ran outside the Applesaucer to see what was happening, many could be heard shouting 'What'z that stuff?!!' to one another.
The Zee Zees all huddled together to figure out what the deal was with all this magical white stuff. 'Is this happening all over the world?' Zeph asked. 'How long will this be happening for?' Zula said. 'What exactly do we do with all of it?' Zacky wondered. Luckily they didn't have to wait long for their answers, because just about the time they got done asking their questions, their human pals Frankie and Johnny came riding up on what looked like a piece of portable plastic. 'Hey Zee Zees, wanna go sledding?' the two humans announced together, passing out some Mixzees Dried Fruit snacks'they'd brought from home. Without hesitation, the Zee Zees each grabbed'a Mixzees'and climbed aboard. Johnny jumped off to push them up the hill and off to an amazing snow day adventure.
After their snacks, they zoomed down and over what seemed like an endless series of hills covered with the fallen flakes, Frankie announced to the Zee Zees on board what was happening. 'You guys are probably wondering what all this white stuff is, right?' The Zee Zees braced themselves on the sleigh and collectively nodded their heads. 'It's called snow! It's basically frozen water that falls from the sky when it gets too cold outside to rain. It happens a lot here in winter. Sometimes we get so much that we get what we call a snow day.' The Zee Zees got an excited look in their eyes, and almost all at once, they asked 'What do you do on a snow day?'
When they got to the bottom of the next hill, Johnny said, 'There's a lot of awesome stuff we can do. Let's get off the sleigh for a second and explore our options.' When they got off the sleigh, Johnny looked over at Frankie and winked sneakily. Then they both knelt down and began picking up some of the snow and began rolling into a little ball. Johnny said, 'Hey what's that over there?' The Zee Zees all turned around to look, and when they did, that's when Frankie and Johnny hurled their snowballs at all of them. 'Hey!' the Zee Zees all shouted gleefully, and then they rolled up their own snowballs and began tossing them at Frankie and Johnny. Everybody was laughing and having a great time until pretty soon they were all so tired, everybody just collapsed on the ground.
After a few minutes of lying down, Johnny said to everybody, 'You guys want to see something else that's pretty cool you can do on a snow day?' The Zee Zees all looked at each other and shook their heads in agreement, and with that Johnny began swishing his arms and legs back and forth. Frankie explained, 'He's making a snow angel.' A collective 'ooooh' rang out from the crowd of Zee Zees, then they all began making their very own snow angels.
As they made their snow angels, everybody began to notice the snow was starting to come down a little harder. Johnny said, 'Well, gang, it looks like the snow is starting to really come down now, we better get back inside. Who wants to go back to my place? My parents say they have'hot cocoa and Cocoa Cherry Bars for us!' Johnny didn't have to wait long for an answer, because as soon he said it, the Zee Zees all piled into the'sled ready to go. Johnny looked at Frankie and said, 'Best snow day ever!'
