Some more fun Christmas poems  - last update: December 2018

Do you know the eight reindeers that help Santa with his deliveries? 

Dasher - Dancer - Prancer - Vixen

Comet - Cupid - Donner - Blitzen

"When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,

with a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:

'Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixen!'"

by Clement C. Moore ‘ A visit from St Nicholas’ 1823

And last but not least, one of the most favourite fun Christmas poems and songs:

Rudolph - the red-nosed reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose and if you ever saw it would you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeers used to laugh and call him names, they never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say:" Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won't you guide my sleigh tonight."

Then how the reindeer loved him and they shouted out with glee:"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, You'll go down in history!"
