Christmas Olympics – Day 2 – Triple Trouble

Posted by Santa Claus on November 30th, 2012

Today was a big day in the Olympic Reindeer Games.  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, reindeer 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!

Santa Claus

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!

    What other reindeer Olympics are there?
    On Tuesday I am doing my first confession
    so I am going to say to God to make up for the things I have done wrong. I have just sent you a letter and I really liked your reply. I believe in you but some of my friends don’t. Everyone in my family believe’s in you. Will I ever get to meet
    you? Do you own all the reindeer or are they shared between all the elves Mrs. Claus and you. All my best friends are excited for Christmas and they would like some lovely presents. there names are Emily,Charlize,Charlotte,Holly and Saucha. I really like your suit and you are really really kind because you give up your time to deliver toys. I love all the reindeer and I really love Rudolf. Lots of love Sian Elizabeth Chapman
