Welcome friends for another year of the Santa Claus Christmas Blog!
Today was the first day of the Reindeer Games. The Games are going to be a little different this year. The reindeer have been learning about strange sports from around the world. Rudolph learned about a sport in England called ‘cheese rolling’. A big round cheese rolls down a steep hill and people chase after it. They try to catch the cheese but it rolls very fast. Most of the people fall over! In the Reindeer Games it is going to be ‘Christmas pudding rolling’.
All of the reindeer climbed to the top of a snowy hill. The Christmas pudding started to roll. All of the reindeer chased after it. The pudding rolled faster and faster. Rudolph ran REALLY fast and made a dive for the pudding. He landed on top of it. HOORAY! But wait … the pudding did not stop. It kept on rolling. Rudolph was now rolling with it!
“HELP!” cried Rudolph. “I can’t stop!”
The other reindeer were now chasing after a Rudolph pudding! Dancer ran faster and faster. He dived on the Rudolph pudding. He caught it. HOORAY! But uh-oh … it did not stop. It was still rolling. It was now a Rudolph and Dancer pudding!
“HELP!” cried Rudolph and Dancer. “We can’t stop!”
“We’re coming” called the others. They all made a dive for the Rudolph and Dancer pudding. THUMP! They all landed in a big bundle on top of it. Would the pudding now stop? Yes! It was too lumpy to keep going!
“Phew!” said Rudolph. “We’ve stopped.”
The reindeer all burst out laughing. “I thought this was meant to be Christmas pudding rolling,” said Dancer, “not ‘reindeer rolling’!”
