Santa did something really unusual the other day – he sent every reindeer — even Blitzen — away from the North Pole.
There isn’t a reindeer to be found here right now.
That’s really unusual. In fact, I cannot remember a time when Santa has done this.
Why did Santa do this?
He felt it important that the reindeer spend time back where they came from. He sent them away and told them he would see them for Christmas. He doesn’t really know for sure when they will come back.
As we told you a few months ago Santa sends most of the reindeer away to ranches around the world but he lets them live completely free during that time. He has to wait for them to return to organize them for Christmas.
So all this is very unusual. But Santa says it is for the best.
I will keep you posted.
