Rudolph’s Hiccups

Rudolph the red-nose reindeer

Ho! Ho! Hiccup?

Well, Rudolph had the hiccups today. What a holly, jolly time we had at the North Pole finding a cure!

Would you like to hear more about red-nosed reindeer hiccups?

Mrs Claus said Rudolph should stand on his head and drink some water. Rudolph tried but the water went up his nose! SPLUTTER! He was Rudolph the wet-nose reindeer!

Well, that did not work! Rudolph hiccupped even more.

The elves said he should stand on his tiptoes and sing jingle bells – backwards!

Rudolph tried. “Sleigh open horse one – hum! Fun what – bells jingle – hum! Bingle jells! Oh, I give up!” he said.

That did not work either! Rudolph hiccupped louder still!

Clumsy the Elf said he should stand on one leg and spin around. He showed Rudolph how to do it. Hop, twirl, hop, twirl, hop-twirly-twirl…

Do you know what happened next?

Clumsy the Elf got dizzy!

He hopped around and bumped into Rudolph.
Rudolph bumped into Blitzen.
Blitzen bumped into Donner.
Donner bumped into Prancer.
Prancer bumped into Dancer.
Dancer bumped into Mrs Claus…
And Mrs Claus spilled a cup of cold, cold water all over Rudolph’s head!

Hiccupping holly berries! It worked!

Rudolph stopped hiccupping! Everybody laughed. “Let’s all have a cookie,” said Mrs Claus.

But oh dear! Clumsy the Elf ate his cookie a little too fast – HIC!  He got hiccups!

That’s when I ran outside for a BIG pail of ice cold water!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

268 special messages to Santa about “Rudolph’s Hiccups”

  1. Welp. my hiccups were really REALLY loud! to stop it is: hold your breath for 10 seconds or more!

  2. When I have the hiccups I get a glass of water and spread a paper towel over it then I drink the water through the paper towel. Boom! There gone.

  3. Ho Ho Ho Santa! Sometimes a good scare works when I get the hiccups but the best cure for hiccups is a sip of water. One time my mum had the hiccups and I got her a glass of water (pretty nice thing to do huh Santa) (wink*) and her hiccups were cured as fast as reindeer fly.

  21. When you have the hiccups, your lungs are having spasms. So, if you breathe in for 4 seconds and for 4 seconds a couple of times, your hiccups should be gone. If this doesn’t work, drink lots of water.

  27. hi santa i am sure it took you a long time to get a cure! I hope he is very well now and is looking forward till Christmas eve for the big long journey around the world!! Santa how do you get around the world in one night! you really are truly magical! i love hearing all the fun little stories about christmas and you! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

  28. Oh gosh… don’t even get me started on hiccups, I’ve had them so many times! Usually what I do when I have hiccups, is that I drink a glass of water really fast, and if that doesn’t work, then I hold my breath for as long as possible so that my diaphragm (that’s the flap inside your throat that starts the hiccups if you drink water or if you breath too fast) stops jerking uncontrollably. I HATE the hiccups! 😀 I wish there was no such THING!!!!! 🙂

  29. When I get the hiccups, I NEVER like to use the “scare” method (I can dish it out but I can’t take it!). Instead, I hold my breath and swallow three times. If that doesn’t work, I just don’t think about it. See ‘ya at Christmas!


    (P.S.:Don’t pretend to have the hiccups or else you’ll really get them!)

  30. Santa I will check for rudolphs fur next to a ps3 add on

    Your friend callum

  55. I know that it can be hard to get rid of hiccups though the easiest way to get rid of them is to get a big fright from somone.(note:Don’t tell the person who has the hiccups or it won’t work.)

  56. Dear Santa,
    When I get the hiccups I just hold my breath.And no I can’t sing Jingle Bells backward.

  65. Yes I have had the hiccups. What I did was I got a big scoop of peant butter and put it in my mouth. It worked! WARNING:IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS, NEVER EVER DO THIS!!!!!!!!

  66. When I had the hiccups
    My sister scared me but it
    Didn’t work so then I held my breathe
    It didn’t work so then I just waited and
    They went away

  67. I usally run and they go away,but if they don`t I hold my breath.Have you ever tried to go to SLEEP with the hiccups?

  68. when i get the hiccups i usally drink water and if that doesnt work i hold my breath for 60 secends and then they go away

  69. I had the hiccups one time and I couldn’t stop!!! I to hold my breath,but it didn’t work.I told mom about it then she scared me to death!!!Then she laugh so hard!!!Then I laugh too.Thats how I cured my hiccups.

  70. I’ve gotten the hiccups, but I have to just calm down. I only get hiccups if I’m too giggly or hyper.

  71. I drank a glass of water while holding my breath, my dad was the founder of that cure, I hope it helps, Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, and seasons greetings to all!

    Ho ho ho

  72. I go and get water from the water fouaten sometimes that does not work so I donte even know that he is going to scare me and sometimes it works but sometimes it dosent so we just let it go till they go away…

  73. I have hiccups almost every day and what I do is I get water and put my mouth on the other side I put my head up side down and drink.

    Et voila

  74. I hold my breath for 10 seconds then breathe and my hiccups have gone or I drink a small glass of water and hold behind my ear and it does the trick!

  75. Rudolph hav Dancer to scare you while you are doing the splits and drinking some ice cold water love u lotsxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  76. We all thought Rudolph having the hiccups was very funny. We have all had the hiccups before in 4P and we have found the best way to get rid of them is to do the splits and put your hands in the air; get a big FRIGHT from someone else, walk into something or drink ice cold water. We hope these ideas help you and the reindeers! Love from 4P

  77. Rudolph hav prancer scare you while holding your breath to see if that works, and garggle milk and let us know how it works love you

  78. Rudolph hold your breath for five seconds, take naps, drink lots of water, see u soon love u lots

  79. Please remember my letter that I gave you. Can you please tell Rouldoph to eat lots of food please. thank you MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  80. Santa, Can I please have a puppy and a gumball machine and alvin from chipwreck please. merry christmas, you are the best santa! your elves are good at making toys!

  81. The hiccup story was sooo funny! I liked it when the reindeer bumped into Mrs Claus and stuff like that, it was very funny!

  82. Dear Santa
    I do know two cures for hiccups. Pinch your nose and drink water and hold your breath.

  83. i usually would breathe in til i can’t breathe in anymore, then hold it for ten seconds then it would be all gone!

  84. Hello Santa! I’m 7 years old. All I do when I have hiccups is wait. Sometimes I get hiccups right before I go to bed but in the morning there are no hiccups! That’s what I do.

  85. I cured my hiccups by when my mom said BOO!!!!!! It scared me to death.Then she laughed so hard.I laughed too.That’s how I cured my hiccups.

  86. Hi Santa, my mommy is writting this comment for me becuase i am only 2 and a half years old. We want to know how santa you are doing and how the mrs c are doing as well . Bye bye for now take care hugs to you and mrs.c love you .

  87. Poor Rudolph! I don’t like the hiccups because I just don’t and I am sure, Rudolph you don’t like it either! when I read you got cold cold water thrown onto your head I felt extremely sorry for you because it must be freezing up there in the North Pole!!
    Love Isabelle xxx

  88. This is funny! When I have hiccups, my sister always tries to scare me, but in the end its my baby brother that frightens me. He is only 1, but he always does dangerous things by accident when he tries to get his toys. That is the scariest thing, because I don’t want him to get hurt! I always manage to save him in time though!


  90. poor rodolph i hate hiccups i could go to my karate becaus of hiccups. i like the bit where Mrs claus spils ice cold cold water on Rodolph’s head and Rodolph stops hiccuping hope he does not get it on christmas

  91. Try standing on one leg and holding your breth for a minute. It worked when I had the HICCUPS, I just hope you are fine for christmas RULDOLPh! Oh and don’t let the other reindeer be meen to you x

  117. I know another to get rid of hiccups. You have to hang upside down on a couch for 5 minutes and it will get rid of them! It worked for a friend!

  118. I hope Rudolf gets better before Christmas
    and you better have a good time up in the north pole

  119. When I get the hiccups it is because I swollow a bunch of air and I drink water and eventually they go away!
