Elf Victor has completed hitching the reindeer up to Santa’s sleigh and Santa is now talking to each of the reindeer personally. What he says to each of them no one really knows, not even Elf Victor.
“Oh, that’s between Santa and each reindeer,” Elf Victor says. “Santa knows each of them really well. I think to some he is soothing and talks calmly. To a few others, like Blitzen, who is kind of a fireball, he talks to him like the great athlete he is, like he is going to go play in the most important game of his life. Blitzen is a leader, a powerful reindeer. Santa just loves him.”
All conditions seem to be just perfect for Santa’s launch.
