Yesterday was Christmas Eve and I couldn’t wait for today. I was outside with my brother playing basketball when our mom called us in to have dinner. When we finished dinner, we put on our pyjamas and went to bed. At about one o’clock in the morning, I heard a big thump. I thought it was Santa so I rushed downstairs but to my surprise it was a….. yellow ostrich! I was terrified! I thought it would hit me but it didn’t. It just stood there looking at me. Eventually, I took it outside and waited for it to run away but it didn’t so I turned around to go inside. I took one last look at it and it spread out its wings and flew away. I didn’t realise they could fly!
