No Sign of Reindeer at the North Pole


Things are getting a little weird here. Christmas is three months from today and there still are no reindeer here at the North Pole.

The weather is starting to turn. By this time most years we can hear the calls of reindeer being trained. We can see them flying around when we look out the windows. But there are no reindeer back yet at the North Pole this year.

I did ask Santa about that today. He just looked at me with big eyes and kind of shrugged. “What’s the problem?” he said. “They will be here when it really matters.”

Is that a strange answer to you?

It sounded like a strange answer to me.
