After flying all over the world on Christmas Eve, my sleigh is very dirty. So today, I took it to the North Pole Sleigh Wash. After all, Santa’s sleigh has to sparkle! The elves worked hard to get it nice and clean.

Well, there were lots of cookie crumbs on the floor and seats. Eating cookies while driving the sleigh can be very messy!
As I travel, my sleigh picks up all kinds of treasures. Some of them fall inside; some of them get stuck to the outside.
We flew through a field of tulips in Holland and one fell into the sleigh. Rice from China spilled onto the floor.
A lei is a very pretty necklace from Hawaii made from flowers. The elves found a lei on the back of the sleigh! (Can you say “lei on sleigh” five times fast?)
A shamrock is a three-leaf clover that comes from Ireland. Some shamrocks stuck to the bottom of the sleigh. It must have been when we stopped in a field for the reindeer to have a snack.
Tinsel from Christmas trees always sticks to my bag. It falls off onto the back seat. Clumsy cleaned it up and he got tangled up in the tinsel! (Can you say “tangled in tinsel” five times fast?)
Candy canes can be very sticky and some were stuck on the runners of the sleigh! The elves had to scrub and scrub to get them off.
I even heard the elves say, “I can’t believe Santa’s sleigh gets so dirty”. “Yes, but look at how clean Santa’s sleigh is now!”
The elves did a great job getting my sleigh clean and shiny again. Just like a red nose! Now it is all ready for next year!
P.S. What other things do you think the elves have to do once Christmas is over? What other things do you think end up in my sleigh during my Christmas Eve ride? You can click here to tell me or scroll down to see what other people have written!
