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 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!"
1. Away in a Manger
Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay.
2. Bethlehem of Judea
A little child,
A shining star.
A stable rude,
The door ajar.
Yet in that place,
So crude, folorn
The Hope of all
The world was born.
3. A Christmas Wish
I'd like a stocking made for a giant,
And a meeting house full of toys,
Then I'd go out in a happy hunt
For the poor little girls and boys;
Up the street and down the street,
And across and over the town,
I'd search and find them everyone,
Before the sun went down.
4. Little Town of Bethlehem
Oh little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lle,
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark street shineth
The everlasting light.
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonignt.
5. Christmas Star
A diamond shines no brighter
than that lovely Christmas star
It shines in all its brilliance
it's seen from near or far.
A symbol of the Christ child
as He lay upon the hay,
It tell to all the waiting world
a King was born that day.
O Bethlehem Star keep shining
give us faith and hope and love.
Keep our thoughts forever turning
to the Savior up above.
Give us strength and hope and courage
to do our best by far
And never falter in our faith
as we watch that Christmas star...
6. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King:
peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
join the triumph of the skies;
with the angelic hosts proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
7. There is more to Christmas
There is more, much more to Christmas
Than just candle-lights and cheer
It's the spirit of sweet friendship,
That brightens all the years
It is thoughtfulness and kindness
It is hope that is reborn again
for peace, for understanding,
And four goodwill to humans
8. Peace on Earth
'Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.'
