Reindeer Games – Tinsel Tag

Posted by Santa Claus on November 29th, 2011

Reindeer Games - tag!

calves playing tag!

The reindeer love playing .  They all played tag today.  Tinsel tag is Dancer’s favourite game.

The reindeer have been very busy with fitness training.  They decided to play a game of tinsel tag just for fun.  Dancer put tinsel on his antlers.

“Catch me if you can! “  he said.  All the others tried to get the tinsel from Dancer.  Do you think they did?

Dancer is very good at tag.  He is also very good at dancing!  He dances to the right.  He dances to the left.  He dances here.  He dances there.  He dances everywhere!  The other reindeer just cannot catch him.

Blitzen tried first.  He got very close but he slipped on the snow and missed.

Vixen tried sliding on her tummy.  She nearly got him.  But she was sliding too fast!  Dancer danced to the right and guess what?  Vixen went straight on.  FLUMP!  She slid into Comet and Donner.  They fell onto their bottoms!

tried next.  He copied Dancer’s dance steps.

“Got you,” he said.

But there was a problem!  Rudolph’s antlers were stuck on Dancer’s antlers.  The tinsel was tangled!  All the other reindeer laughed.  Rudolph and Dancer were spinning in a circle.  They were having a Christmas dance party!

Merry Christmas!

    Dear Santa,

    I wish I could see you. But it’s hard because it’s night and I have to go to sleep. But I promise, I will leave some cookies and milk out for you on Christmas.

    And whenever it’s Christmas, I wish I could see you. You are awesome!



  12. alexis

    Dear Santa,

    It might kind of hard for you to fit down our chimney, because we use ours for heat. But we will leave the back door unlocked for you. We will have lots of cookies for you too!

    I wish I was a reindeer so I could play Tinsel Tag with the other reindeer! That sounds like so much fun! I would have a blast sliding around trying to get the tinsel!

    But I don’t see how you stand the snow and cold all the time. My reindeer name would be Avalanche, because I would cause the snow to come down the mountains every time I took off, because I would be so fast!
