The Real Christmas Robin

I went to England to spend Christmas with my family. My grandma and granddad  had a big surprise for me. They put some crumbs on my hand and told me to go outside the  house. I went outside the house thinking to myself I have crumbs on my hand what kind of surprise could it be and all of a sudden a wild robin flew to my hand and started to eat the crumbs. It was EPIC!!!. The robins name is Shorty because my Grandma makes short bread and we feed Shorty with short bread crumbs ;).
