Christmas is almost here! I am so excited. The North Pole is getting busier every single day. The elves have started to sing their Christmas Carols as they slide down their ice slides from their beds in the morning. It is the happiest sound to wake up to. But my reindeer Dancer isn’t himself. I hope he’ll be ok.
I am actually looking for your help today. I went in to visit the reindeer this afternoon to see how they were feeling about it being flying season soon. We start to practice a lot in November. We have to make sure our flight is smooth and jolly on Christmas Eve. I said hello to everyone. Rudolph’s nose was brighter than ever. He can’t wait to visit you all. But something was wrong with Dancer. He was a little bit quiet. When I squeezed in to his stable he was facing the wall and he let out a deep sigh. He sounded very sad. I asked him what the matter was.
“It’s nothing,” he told me quietly. His voice was sad and he wouldn’t look at me. “I’m fine.”
I could tell something was really bothering him. I tried to tell him everything would be okay. He has been pulling my sleigh for longer than I can remember. This year shouldn’t be any different! It didn’t seem to make him feel better. I am not sure what to do. I feel sad for him. He is usually so happy and has a lot of energy. When he pulls my sleigh, it is like he is dancing in air after all.
What do you think I should do to make Dancer feel better? I think I need to help him open up and tell me what is really bothering him.
