Christmas Olympics – Day 2 – Triple Trouble

Today was a big day in the Olympic .  It was the final of the triple jump event.  Only Donner, Dancer, and Dasher were left.  Who would win the gold medal?

Donner was first to go.

He took a deep breath and galloped down the track.  He hopped.  He skipped.  He jumped … WHOOSH!  Donner sailed through the air and landed in… the  snow pit!  There is no sand at the North Pole!   The elves marked his hoof prints.

Dancer went next.

He took a huge breath and galloped down the track even faster.  He hopped.  He skipped.  He did a twirl in the air and landed on his toes in the snow pit.  The elves marked his hoof prints.  It was a very close contest.

Dasher was last to go.

He looked very serious. He snorted.  He blew.  And he charged down the track at top speed.  He hopped.  He skipped.  He jumped HIGH into the air.  The crowd gasped.  This was going to be a VERY BIG jump.  Dasher landed – THUMP – on his bottom!  His cheeks were red.   He was blushing.  After all, ARE supposed to land on their hooves!   The elves giggled and marked his bottom print.

Well, would you believe it?  Dasher was the winner by the length of… a reindeer’s tail.  HIP HIP HOORAY for Dasher!

Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Do you think my reindeer should land on their hooves or their bottoms?  Would you mind reindeer bum prints on your roof?  You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
