WHAT to my wondering eyes should appear
A wonderful sleigh with eight lovely REINDEER
More rapid than eagles the eight reindeer came
Saint Nicholas whistled and called them by name !

Come Dasher & Dancer come Prancer & Vixen
Come Comet & Cupid come Donder & Blitzen
To the top of the porch - to the top of the wall
Now dash away - flash away - dash away all !

When they meet with an obstacle - up to the sky
Like dry leaves - before a wild hurricane fly
So up to the housetops ~ the Reindeer they flew
With the sleigh full of toys and Saint Nicholas too !

He filled all our stockings - and then with a wave
He jumped back on the sleigh and a whistle he gave.
And I heard him exclaim as the flew out of sight
HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all and a very GOOD NIGHT !

We all love the story of SAINT NICHOLAS (Santa Claus) 
and his eight lovely REINDEER.  As children we used to
leave  MINCE  PIE  and a sherry and carrots for all the
REINDEER !  They had all been eaten in the morning  !
Our stocking (pillow cases) we all full of lovely toys !  


WHAT ABOUT RUDOLPH - The red nosed reindeer you ask ?
Well BOYS & GIRLS  -  that is another story for another day !
