The North Pole is a fun place. Everyone loves to play and be silly, especially at the reindeer games. We always enjoy that. But sometimes we have accidents, and those are no fun at all! This week, Blitzen had an accident.
Blitzen was playing Jingle Ball in the reindeer games. Jingle Ball is like soccer. It is played with a giant jingle bell for a ball. Blitzen tried to kick the giant jingle bell into the net. He slipped on some ice and hurt his leg.
Oh deer, first Dancer started feeling a bit sad and now Blitzen is hurt!
The reindeer vet came right away and said that Blitzen’s leg was sprained. He would have to wear a cast and not play Jingle Ball for two weeks! Blitzen was very sad that he couldn’t play Jingle Ball with his friends. He needed to let his leg heal so he could help pull my sleigh.
All the reindeer went home after the reindeer games, and Blitzen limped home with me. I could tell he felt sad about missing a Jingle Ball game. The next game was the championship! The winning team would get a big trophy. Blitzen felt like he let his team down.
I told him that his teammates wanted him to feel better. He was still an important part of the team. He could cheer for his team to win and be excited for them.
Blitzen thought about it and decided to go to the championship. He was his team’s biggest fan! He cheered when they did well and encouraged them when they messed up. All the other reindeer were happy that he came.
Blitzen’s team won the game by two points. They got the trophy! Even though he didn’t get to play, Blitzen helped them win. The team was glad that Blitzen came. They wanted him to be better in time for Christmas Eve.
