If there’s one thing most of us have probably noticed about the year 2020 by now, it’s that everything is very bad. Between a pandemic, democracy hanging on by a thread, civil unrest, wildfires, and so on—it’s like every headline is more nightmarish than the next. So, you’ll please understand if we just want to be distracted by a baby duck falling asleep with a flower on its head.

Yes, a baby duck falling asleep with a flower on its head! Wearing it like a little sleepy time hat! The 20-second video (of unknown provenance) was recently introduced to the world. Twitter user @wamlart shared the video on Sunday and wrote, “if u are feeling sad pls look at this cute duck.”

Not wholly surprisingly, the baby duck falling asleep with a flower on its head also began inspiring fan art.

At any rate, a baby duck falling asleep with a flower on its head is much less depressing than a baby duck who gets his head stuck in a stewed tomato, as outlined in the song “He Layeth on High.” This one is somber so it’s alright to cry.
