A new Christmas Game – Reindeer snowball shinty!

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.
