Santa’s Other Reindeer

Did you know I have lots of that do not pull the sleigh?

Today we had the first reindeer games.  There were many reindeer.  But, I can only use 9 special reindeer to pull my sleigh. I am sure you know the names of my most famous reindeer:

Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!

And of course, there’s Rudolph too!

It takes a very special reindeer to pull Santa’s sleigh.  To begin, very few reindeer can fly!

They also have to be fast.  We only have one night to deliver all the presents.

They have to be strong too.  The sleigh is very heavy.

The first reindeer practice is always a little funny to watch.  All the reindeer try very hard.  But, well, like I said, it takes a very special reindeer to pull Santa’s sleigh.

These are just some of my other reindeer.  They were all at practice today.  But, they did not make the team.

– Chub-Chub could barely get off the ground;
– Bruno, the brown-nosed reindeer liked to be right behind Rudolph but couldn’t stop very well;
– Tipsy kept falling off the roof;
– Blinker would fly for hours with his turn signal on;
– Tinkle had to stop for lots of potty breaks;
– Olive the other reindeer used to laugh and call Rudolph names;
– Pokey was too slow;
– Achoo had a red nose too, but she kept sneezing;
– Daisy and Rosie wanted to pick flowers at every stop;
– Krasher kept flying into buildings;
– Thumper kept waking people up when she was on the roof; and,
– Toots just putt-putted along;

I hope they will all try again next year.  After all, the more you practice the better you get!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.  Do you think it would be fun to watch the reindeer practice?  Can you guess the names of my other reindeer that don’t pull the sleigh, and why?  (Scroll down to leave your message for me or to see what others have written!)

  7. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! My favorite part of christmas is puting the christmas tree up and puting the oraments on the tree.

  8. I love the reindeer!
    By the way, which Christmas film is your favourite? I like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The 1998 version. Personally I think it’s too under-rated and I think it’s actually better than the 1964 one. You should see it. I just think it’s better and needs more publicity.

    Reply from the Elves:

    So many kids want to talk to Santa right now, the best way to reach him is at http://emailSanta.com/email_santa.asp . He will write you back right away!

    If you’d like to talk to someone because you are sad about something then the best thing is to talk to your family about it. If you still want to talk then you can always call the great people at one of the phone numbers on this page: http://emailSanta.com/Childrens_hotlines.htm (make sure to choose a phone number for your country!). We like to think of them as “elves in training”!

    Reply from Santa:

    Fern, it is ok if others don’t believe in me. Sometimes when kids and adults get older they lose their spirit of childhood. They even start to think that I don’t exist! Just remember, everyone can have their own opinion (even if it does not happen to be right! :).

    If talking to your friends or other kids about this makes you upset, then it might be best not to talk to them about it. You are your own person. You do not have to believe or do something just because your friends say so! And, as long as you keep the spirit of Santa in your heart, that is what is most important!

    Merry Christmas!

    Santa

  26. 26 more sleeps! I can’t wait! I never knew you had other reindeer, that’s really cool! Merry Christmas!

  27. Dear Santa,
    Just a little while longer and then it will finally be Chrismas.
    Hard to believe but we haven’t got much snow out here ’cause everytime it snows, it rains and all of the snow just melts. I still can’t believe that you can get all the way around the world in just one night. You know lots of people think you’re a hero for that. Love Annie xoxoxoxoxoxo

    LOVE LEAH OXOXOXOXOXOX

  52. Noah (age 2) wants to see santa’s reindeer. Cole (age 5) thinks seeing the reindeer would be great too. Cole wants a nintendo DS, a game boy, and lots of games. Can you make that happen Santa? We told him he might not be old enough for those toys.
