R … is for Reindeer and Ribbons

ReindeerFor British children, Father Christmas wouldn’t be able to deliver all the presents without his reindeers to pull his sleigh over the rooftops. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is probably the most famous of them all! 😉

We learn about the reindeers in the poem:

“T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there …

… And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen! … ”

And, of course, presents need to be wrapped up in pretty Christmas paper and tied with Christmas ribbons – perhaps with something like these here!
