New Reindeer at the North Pole for Santa!

Santa's new reindeer
Tumshie, the new reindeer

We got a new reindeer at the North Pole today.  Mrs Claus told me recently that it would be an idea to have a few more reindeer in case any of the others got ill.  She is a very wise lady and I had to agree.

However, when the newest reindeer arrived I realised that he might not be up for the job.  He is a beautiful reindeer but, well, he isn’t very good at flying!

When I took him for a test flight he almost crashed into the house. Then the new reindeer almost landed in some trees!

I was really disappointed. I didn’t know what to do.  So I went in for a hot chocolate and some of those fancy imported marshmallows. I needed to think.

It was then that I heard the sound of laughter from the yard.  I looked out to see Scunner, the Grumpy Elf, throwing snowballs at the new reindeer.  I was so upset.  I will not allow any bullying in the North Pole! I quickly opened the window.

“Scunner what are you doing?”  I shouted.

Scunner turned so quickly, his big feet got tangled in his long lab coat and he fell onto his bottom.

“Santa, I was just playing.” He stammered.

“You are bullying the poor animal.” I was getting quite upset.

“No, I’m not,” Scunner began to sob. “He’s my new pal.  We were playing.”

And then the new reindeer surprised me.  He gave Scunner’s face a great big, wet lick!  Then the reindeer gently pulled Scunner to his feet.

“I’ve called him Tumshie,” Scunner said and the reindeer bleated in agreement.

I felt really bad.  I had jumped to a conclusion and that was not a good thing to do.

I don’t know what we’ll do with Tumshie yet, but it’s very nice to see new friendships start.

  21. just want to ask if you can come to berlin pa on Sunday for the Christmas dance when I can tell you my Christmas wish.

  22. I feel delighted to hear that a new reindeer has been introduced into the christmas spirit and group of reindeers. Maybe you should take tumshie on flying lessons more often and eventually he will get better and better at it.

  23. I seem to always get blamed for things my dad does and he takes credit for any good ideas I come up with. Its not fair, but who am I to complain.

  24. You should train Tumshie. I know you don’t have time to since Christmas is right around the corner. If Mrs.Claus don’t mind maybe she can take care of your jobs while you are training Tumshie
