Actually, Santa only uses 9 reindeer to pull his magical sleigh through the air on Christmas Eve, delivering toys to all the girls and boys. Their names are:

  • Dasher
  • Dancer
  • Prancer
  • Vixen
  • Comet
  • Cupid
  • Donner
  • Blitzen
  • Ruldolph

Of course, Ruldolph is always at the front of the pack, lighting up the night with his shiny red nose.

Here is one of my favorite songs to remember them all:

You know Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen, But do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Had a very shiny nose, And if you ever saw it, You could even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names; They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say: “Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?” Then how the reindeer loved him As they shouted out with glee, “Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer, You’ll go down in history.”
