Rudolph’s Hiccups

Posted by Santa Claus on December 11th, 2011

Rudolph the red-nose reindeer


Ho! Ho! Hiccup?

Well, Rudolph had the hiccups today. What a holly, jolly time we had at the North Pole finding a cure!

Would you like to hear more about red-nosed reindeer hiccups?

Mrs Claus said Rudolph should stand on his head and drink some water. Rudolph tried but the water went up his nose! SPLUTTER! He was Rudolph the wet-nose reindeer!

Well, that did not work! Rudolph hiccupped even more.

The elves said he should stand on his tiptoes and sing jingle bells – backwards!

Rudolph tried. “Sleigh open horse one – hum! Fun what – bells jingle – hum! Bingle jells! Oh, I give up!” he said.

That did not work either! Rudolph hiccupped louder still!

Clumsy the Elf said he should stand on one leg and spin around. He showed Rudolph how to do it. Hop, twirl, hop, twirl, hop-twirly-twirl…

Do you know what happened next?

Clumsy the Elf got dizzy!

He hopped around and bumped into Rudolph.
Rudolph bumped into Blitzen.
Blitzen bumped into Donner.
Donner bumped into Prancer.
Prancer bumped into Dancer.
Dancer bumped into Mrs Claus…
And Mrs Claus spilled a cup of cold, cold water all over Rudolph’s head!

Hiccupping holly berries! It worked!

Rudolph stopped hiccupping! Everybody laughed. “Let’s all have a cookie,” said Mrs Claus.

But oh dear! Clumsy the Elf ate his cookie a little too fast – HIC!  He got hiccups!

That’s when I ran outside for a BIG pail of ice cold water!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

    My friend Brittany B. said:

    When you have the hiccups, your lungs are having spasms. So, if you breathe in for 4 seconds and for 4 seconds a couple of times, your hiccups should be gone. If this doesn’t work, drink lots of water.

    My friend Amanda said:

    Oh gosh… don’t even get me started on hiccups, I’ve had them so many times! Usually what I do when I have hiccups, is that I drink a glass of water really fast, and if that doesn’t work, then I hold my breath for as long as possible so that my diaphragm (that’s the flap inside your throat that starts the hiccups if you drink water or if you breath too fast) stops jerking uncontrollably. I HATE the hiccups! :D I wish there was no such THING!!!!! :)
