The famous “Make Way for Ducklings” statues at the Boston Public Gardens in Massachusetts are covered in fresh snow and geared up for winter. Mama duck is dressed in a festive red and white scarf for the holidays. Make Way for Ducklings is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey. First published in 1941, the book tells the story of a pair of mallard ducks who decide to raise their family on an island in the lagoon in Boston Public Garden, a park in the center of Boston, Massachusetts. The book's popularity led to the construction of a statue by Nancy Schon in the Public Garden. "Happy Holidays" is written in a script font in white ink.
