‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through Santa’s workshop,
The reindeer were busy plotting mischief and mayhem.
It’s true, Santa gets most of the glory.
But what about those hard-working reindeer?
They shoulder the bulk of the burden, carrying the weight of Santa and his gazillion tons of toys all around the world in a single night.
That’s no small feat, and it’s little wonder those creatures love their reindeer games so much.
(The jolly ol’ dude’s weight has always been a delicate topic, but the reindeer aren’t known for their diplomacy.)
(Hauling Santa’s donut-shoveling corpse around is more strenuous than hauling 386 sacks of toys at once.)
(A GPS can only get you so far, especially when the reindeer have been tampering with it. While this mishap may not be the best example of a good time for all, it probably breaks up the monotony of a long night.)
(Who can blame these reindeer for wanting to make the most of this opportunity for mischief? Although frankly, I’m surprised Santa doesn’t get himself stuck every single time he crams himself down one of those things.)
(Reindeer work hard and deserve a break! Which evidently involves partying hard and accidentally impaling Santa’s elves…)
(Modern technology has done wonders in taking a huge load off Santa’s back.)
(I believe I can fly! I believe I can touch the… oops, the sky is the other direction! Well, so much for that…)
(While the burden of hauling a five billion-ton sleigh falls on the reindeer, Santa gets his workout by sucking it all in and repeatedly diving in and out of strangers’ chimneys in the middle of the night.)
(Your reindeer are begging you to put that donut down! In the spirit of the holidays, don’t be such a glutton!)
(In such a role reversal, do the reindeer now hop out of the sleigh to slide down chimneys and deliver the toys? Or does Santa still have to do that, in addition to his newly assigned duty of pulling the sleigh?)
(This is one of the sounds of the season, surely?)
(Hey, if the shoe fits… Ho, ho, hole! Merry Christmas!)
~Happy Saturday, friends! Have a fantastic weekend, and a very Merry Christmas!~
