A new Christmas Game – Reindeer snowball shinty!

Posted by Santa Claus on December 7th, 2013

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.

Blitzen thought he could create a brand new Christmas game using some things we have at the North Pole.  The reindeer could use big candy canes as hockey sticks and a Christmas tree bauble as a ball.  They tried using a snowball for a ball, but well, you can imagine how that turned out!  The first time one of the reindeer hit the snowball, it went SPLAT!  HHHOL!

Rudolph, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen made one team.  Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, and Dasher made the other team.

What an exciting game it was!  Rudolph’s team scored the first two points ever in this new Christmas game.  His nose glowed red, just like a goal light!

Then Blitzen’s team scored two points.  The reindeer were running and flying from end to end.  But time was running out.  The next team to score would be the winners.

Blitzen gave the bauble a mighty WHACK!  It flew high through the air.  Uh! Oh!  Then there was trouble.  TING!  The bauble hit the star at the top of the North Pole Christmas Tree.  BOING!  It bounced off and landed on the toy workshop roof.  SWOOSH!  It slid down the roof in a big pile of snow.  FLUMP!  The snow landed on Donder standing below.  BRRRR!  Donder shook his head.  FLIP! His antlers flipped the bauble into the air again.  Where would it go next …?

…The bauble sailed through the air at high speed.  OUCH!  It hit Blitzen right on the butt!  But guess what?  It bounced off Blitzen and straight into the goal.  Blitzen’s team are the winners!  Ho! Ho! Ho!  What a lucky shot for Blitzen!

Merry Christmas!
