Pudding the cat spends most of the year asleep. She loves to snooze in my big armchair by the fire. But Pudding is a Christmas cat. She LOVES Christmas! December is the time of year when she wakes up to join in the fun.
The Reindeer Games turned into adventure games today. It was Cupid’s idea. He really wanted to try bungee jumping. His idea was called “Cupid’s Christmas Cookie Challenge”.
The reindeer invented and played a new reindeer Christmas game called “snowball shinty” today. Blitzen had learned all about it in a book about Scottish sport. It is a little bit like hockey played on grass. The players have a stick and they hit a hard ball.
Blitzen thought he could create a brand new Christmas game using some things we have at the North Pole. The reindeer could use big candy canes as hockey sticks and a Christmas tree bauble as a ball. They tried using a snowball for a ball, but well, you can imagine how that turned out! The first time one of the reindeer hit the snowball, it went SPLAT! HHHOL!

Have you ever heard of candy cane limbo skating reindeer before? Well, neither had I, until today!
Today was limbo skating day in the Reindeer Games. Cupid had learned all about this strange sport. People try to roller skate under very low things. The winners get REALLY low. They do the splits on roller skates! Cupid thought the reindeer could try limbo skating on ice. Reindeer do not need ice skates. Reindeer hooves make great skates!
