How Santa Got His Reindeer

Paul Reid

If you read Little Santa by Jon Agee, you can know how Santa got one reindeer, but what about the other 10? (Armstrong, Ralph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, RudolphDonner, and Blitzen)

Well, once upon a time, Santa’s first reindeer grew old.

He said, “I can’t do this anymore. I’m growing old and there’s more children every year. More presents! Heavier sleigh! I’m too old.”

Well, Blitzen left and Santa was left with no reindeer. But then, the next morning, a reindeer named Donner arrived! They found Blitzen but next Christmas the sleigh was still too heavy! It went on like this for 8 more years, until Santa had 10 reindeer! Ralph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Rudolph, Donner, and Blitzen were exhausted from all the weight! But then one more reindeer arrived named Armstrong. Everyone except him and Santa didn’t want to try. But Santa knew that Armstrong meant hardy, brave, and strong, so they tried again and they all said that the sleigh was as light as a feather.
