Reindeer Can’t Drive

I am sure you know elves are silly.  You might even know that my reindeer love doing silly things too.   But do you know who the silliest are?

Well, of all my reindeer, Dasher and Vixen do the silliest things.

Last night they hid pointy pinecones in ’s bed.  He was so angry his nose glowed for an hour!

Then poor Dasher found his comfy straw bed outside.   It was a block of ice by bedtime!

But today was the worst.  Vixen snuck two remote control cars out of the workshop.  She dared Dasher to race her.  It was a disaster!

Both reindeer wanted to win.  Of course, it is very hard to use a remote control with hooves!  The cars went every which way!

Vixen’s jeep smashed into .  Clumsy fell into a rack of china dolls.  Those beautiful dolls broke into a zillion pieces.  Then the rack of dolls knocked over three other shelves of toys!

Dasher did not do any better.   His truck knocked over the puzzle table.  Pieces from 100 different puzzles lay in a mixed up jumble on the floor.

The cars finally crashed to a stop by the train table.  Vixen and Dasher knew they were in BIG trouble.   No one made a peep.  They all just stared at all the ruined toys.

Yes, the reindeer’s fun ended quickly.  They had caused a bunch of extra work for the already busy elves.  And it is only a few days until Christmas!

Clumsy’s team went right to work.  They have to fix all of the broken toys.  I think they will almost be done by Christmas.

Well, Vixen and Dasher said they were sorry but I had to put them onto the !  They promised to stay out of trouble.  Well, at least until after Christmas.

(By the way, I am sorry if anyone gets a puzzle missing a piece or two!)

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

  1. I think you should ground them for about a week! I would forgive them though too because they were just trying to have some fun and didnt mean to jingle up such a mess and commotion! Me and my sister do it all the time where we are just messing around and having fun and we break something or one of us gets hurt! its okay! it happens to everyone!

  2. Make them fly around the workshop 10 times then they have to help the elves remake the toys for at least 5 days.They also need to clean up the mess they made to!

  3. I think you should ground dasher and vixen for 3 days and not let them fly until christmas eve.also make them apologize to clumsy’s team and all of the elves because they worked hard and dasher and vixen ruined everything!

  4. that’s not really my name i havent actually read this yet :0 but anyway merry christmas santa

  5. mybe they neeed red noses too
    fly around the north pole they will
    bump in to other if look where they
    are flying in sky up inthe north pole

  6. Just like you said…… Put them on the naughty list!!! How are the other reindeer doing!?

  7. My name is like Vixen’s! Maybe I was named after her! I think they’re just being silly, I mean, I play netball outside, even in the freezing cold! I bet they wouldn’t DARE do anything outdoors! Challenge them!

  8. Please can u get me a chocolate lolly maker please and then after that I dont mind what u get me at all love mia thank you all of u I have a suprise for u Santa and raindeires is well by got to stop now sorry uther wise my mums going to go nuts by by best to be off by by xxxx xxxx

  9. Santa,you should make them sit in your office for one hole week and make them think what they had done and the second thing you should do is make them say sorry to EVERYBODY at the North Pole expecialy the Elves

  10. dear santa right now im in your santa claus christmas blog I heard about the two reindeers that they made a mess u should not put them in the naughty list they didnt meen to I think they just want to have some fun.

  11. hi santa i dont know but all i want for chirstmas is a leopard gecko if tht is ok pleases i will do anything i will look after the reindeer if u like thank u with alll my hear raegen x

  12. You could put them in there rooms for an hour or so, then let them out.

  13. knock knock who`s there pink pink who knock knock who`s there are you glad i did not say pink madison

  14. take them off thier just being silly reindeer i have a pet goat and ilove the reindeer and goat the same so should you

  15. What you can do is give them a little time out.. or just dont reward them by giving them treats. Well, its most likely everyone causes trouble when they get carried away. It’s just a fact!

  16. dasher and vixen are naughty but plz give them one chance.


  17. yes i have got into trouble wen i was just trying to have fun and dont put dasher and vixen on the noty list

  18. Onto the naughty list? But they need a chance! I mean, they apologized, right? But of course, no one can defy the great Santa Claus, so I suppose if this is the final word, then I will just have to deal with it. Ah, but I root for the reindeer on this one!

  19. tell Mrs.clause to give them the worst punishment ever!! she make the worst punishment possible without taking their jobs away.

  20. first i think you should give them five minutes each in timeout if they cause trouble and double it if they are REAL BIG TROUBLe.second you should make them tally sheets and tally them every time they are bad give them a tally and give them a * if they are good.

  21. No offense, but Santa shouldn’t put them on the naughty list! Dasher and Vixen should never be put on the naughty list. They pull the sleigh every year, and they are not naughty then, are they? However they did cause trouble. I think maybe no carrots for a day. Sound good?

  22. You should let them take an elf’s job for a day to fix all the broken toys and see how they like it (even though they have hooves, not hands)! It’s hard work to fix that many toys! I hope they’ll be good again to be on the nice list! 😀

  23. Santa clause controll your reindeer before it’s time to deliver presents or they will skip houses and every one will not get presents

  24. DO you think reindeer will be able to go around the worlg in 100 years i bet he will be tied xx

  25. Ok,so if any reindeer is pulling pranks on elves just say they can’t pull the slay on christmas eve.Then, they will learn their lesson.

  26. I was playing with my wooden truck & i was standing on it & my sister was pushing me so i accidently pushed it back and hurt her

  27. WOIW! santa you must be very upset. i hope they can rebuid the toys intime for christmas! <3 love, katherine your angel *smiles*

  28. you should give the other raindeers treats but not dasher and vixen they should go on the naughty ist until they are good agian :)xx

  29. Dear Santa, I think you should give Dasher and Vixen a timeout!! And then take them off the naughty list:)

  30. if one of them wins the sleigh compition do not let them guide it let the person who came second lead it

  31. they shouldn’t be on the naughty list, they should just be locked in their pens for a day, and feed the other reindeer treats.

  32. Vixen and Dasher are proberly all sooo sorry but keep them on the naughty list because maybe they might be good for the days before christmas because they know they have been bad so they are trying to be good but if you dont put them on the naughty list they will be bad again which wont be good just before christmas especially if they do what they did before again some children might not get any presents then.
    Anyway its your choice.

  33. yes i have gotten in truoblded alot acully just for trying to have fun…and acully i am a little confused ok so if you lie to your parent you get in troubled well parents always tell you it is a good thing to tell the truth but wehn you tell the truth you get in troble! so maybe that is why a lot of kids lie santa because probly in thier brain now they might not think this right away but they are probly confussed to lie or tell the trut so if you write me back and tell me what the answer lie or tell the truth

  34. dear santa claus you are sooo nice and sweet can’t wait t’il christmas your the best. merry christmas love santa

  35. I think those rain deer are very very naughty! But they do deserve a second chance. Also, since they pull the sleigh they should be put back on the nice list.I hope you understand what I’m saying and consiter putting them back on the nice list.

  36. well you should not put them on the naughty list because they were just trying to have fun they did not mean to break all of those toys i say you should take them off of the naughty list right now please they are like me i play and sometimes it does not turn out right tell them they are off the naughty list merry christmas

  37. Hi Santa :) Is Donner And Vixen Are On They Naughty List, They should have to sleep outside on a straw bed :( That should happen :(

  38. awww my sister wanted china dolls . You should put them in their bedroom for 5 mins or an hour like my mum

  39. well my broler qwill be supper sad if he had a puzzle pese missing but he did not ask for one!

  40. I think when they have been Naughty they should be put on the naughty mat and not get any dinner.

  41. well of course they can’t drive! and if they could, they would need hands, not hooves!!!

  42. iloveyou santa please bring me lots of presents. anway i think they should go to bed early every night

  43. Dasher and Vixen are so nice and probably didn’t want to cause any trouble so please forgive them!

  44. elves yes reindeer yes they are both silly at times but they are delivering are toys and dolls are what you want so i think dasher and vixen should be told that the may fun but be careful why they have fun and true not to break toys elves have a hard enough tome with toys !!!!!

  45. When I get in trouble Or brake somthing I help fix it or pay money for it and then Im sent to my room

    xxxxxx xxxxxx

  51. i reckon you should make them help the elves and put everythink back in to place ecspcially the puzzles

  52. hi santa i just want to say this a great great i mean really great blog. so it is good you do one every day how are the eleves+you (most of all because you are the best)+mrs clause+and the raindeers. how are you doing with the prents?
    and what i said about the blog is true i am going read it every day because it rockes

  53. (Sigh) Naughty reindeer. I’ll send Rudolph a letter from my dog and add in it to tell Dasher and Vixen that I’ll help them get back on the Nice List! ☺


  54. I think you should keep them on the nice list but not let them go on the
    sleigh with you this year because
    that is sort of a treat don’t you think so that is what I think.

  55. I think that they should be in a time out just for a little while then have them not eat goodies for a day or an hour

  56. sorry, i ment to write,

    “tell them that if there not carefull, they might be on the naughty list next year, to!”

  57. dont get mad at them, santa. its so close to christmas! there probly just realy excited. tell them to be carefuller, though. tell them that if there not carfull, they might be on the naughty list to! tell them that if there not carefull, someone couldget hurt, or even worse, very nice children might not get there presents this year! but don’t be to hard on them, cause they might run away.
    i don’t know.
    i just hope they have learned there lesson!

  58. merry christmas santa,how many reindeer do u have and i should give them something for them for christmas

  59. I have done quite a few bad things but never have I been told off after you have done it you get butterflys and really are sorry and it want matter because th elves are so clever but peaple or reindeer get a bit carried away

  60. yes I have gotten into trouble when I was just having fun.What you should do is make them proof to you that they are sorry but if they do it once more give them a punishment like not be able to be in the compition to guide the sleigh on the 24th

  61. I love this blog Santa!! Hope you write more to the internet!! (*wink*) (*HOHOHO*)
    Your the best Santa CLaus!Q How is Mrs.Claus?!

  62. You should make them run 15 miles at top speed with no brakes.I figured 15 miles would do because are p.e. coach usually makes us run 3 quarters of a mile at top speed and by that time we are already tired and already have got all the energy and back talk out of us.So i figured that reindeer travel for a long time that,that would do.

    p.s. with no reindeer magic.


  64. You should tell them that every 3 hours they are good they get a stick of celery our a carot.


  66. You should punish them and put at the back of the sleigh by you so they can’t guide the sleigh like RUDOLOPH

  67. Don’t punish them Santa because you need all your reindeer when you go around the world putting presents under the Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve. You need them because it’s tradition and it is going to be hard for the other reindeer to pull the sleigh with 2 reindeer missing

  68. Tell the elve I said hi and I love this website. I love to talk to you and I think it is cool that you can see if the children are being naughty or nice. Sorry if I talk to you to much, but I like to.

  69. Hi santa, can’t beleive its only 7 sleeps untill christmas when you bring me everything i want! Can’t wait!
    loveyouuu, Byeee xx

    Lots of love, Megan<3

  70. I know neither can dogs or cat ans or birds or any other animals except for monkeys i suppose!

  71. Dear big guy,
    Please let me see the Naty and Nice list.
    Let me know where you are every after noon.
    I will be nice and not at like a baby. How are
    Every body at the North Pole? P.S.
    I will never tell eny body about the list.

  72. I think instead of puting them on the naughty list you should tell them they can’t play reindeer games for a week!
    Please don’t put them on a naughty list Santa

  73. Santa I have made a mess before when i was just trying to have fun,like when me and my brother was playing with my Barbie house and my brother and me started to drive them around on my dad’s car and did i mention that the dolls were really muddy!!!!

  74. i know reinder cant drive they ran over gramma but least it wasnt their fault it was that naughty lady i hope everyone has a great christmas and god bless u all

  75. hi i think you should tell them that they should be more careful and if they will stop messing around they will be able to get back on the nice list

  76. You should put them into timeout and make sure they stay out of trouble when they enter the toy making rooms until after Christmas. But give them trust because a lot of the time people and kids rise to the occasion when you give them trust.Stay Ho HO HO jolly!
    Long time fans,
    Paige and Taylor!

    P.s we will write letters to you on your email!

  77. heyy santa,

  78. I think you should forgive them. It was an accident and they didn’t mean it. Everyone deserves a second chance. They mean well. Forgiveness is the way to go in any scenario. They just want to have fun. Oh! Reindeer just want to have fun! CHRISTMAS!!!!

  79. I think you should not let them be voted to lead the sleigh and should help clean up the mess
