Santa's Back-Up Team, just in case the reindeer go on strike.....
Don't think it will happen but you just never know.
It was soon to be Christmas Day
Santa was checking out his sleigh
Making sure things were right
For his ride on Christmas Eve night
He checked out the reindeer
Called them by name. . .
Asked if they were ready
To go around the world again
The reindeer perked up
Looking at Santa,
Rudolph had something to say,
"We are going on strike"
"You have never gone on strike" Said Santa, very dismayed
"Tell me what you want," exclaimed Santa, with a gleem in his eyes
Dasher needs more vacation time
Prancer wants more treats
Vixon needs new teeth
Dancer wants more sleep
Cupid wants her own phone
Comet needs time alone
Donner wants more playtime
Blitzen needs nothing at all
Santa, wrote all of it down
"I promise after Christmas Eve
Your wants, needs will be fulfilled
Let's get ready, time to role"

Dasher: The first reindeer and the right leader before Rudolph came.
Dancer: The second reindeer and the left leader before Rudolph was included. She is the graceful reindeer.
Prancer: The third reindeer and on the right in the second row. He is the most powerful reindeer.
Vixen: The fourth reindeer and on the left-hand side in the second row. She is beautiful, and also powerful like her companion, Prancer.
Comet: The fifth reindeer and on the right-hand side in the third row. He brings wonder and happiness to children when Santa flies over everyone’s houses.
Cupid: The sixth reindeer and on the right-hand side in the third row. She brings love and joy to children when Santa flies over everyone’s houses.
Donner: The seventh reindeer and on the left-hand side in the fourth row. His original name was Dunder, a variant of donder, meaning “thunder” in Dutch.
Blitzen: The eighth reindeer and on the left-hand side in the fourth row. Though female, she is portrayed as a male in American culture. Her original name is Blixem. She is known as the lightning reindeer because the word ‘Blitz’ is German for lightning, as is Bliksem, her original name, in Dutch.
"Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's on his way
He's loaded all the presents on the back of his sleigh.
Please leave a good snack for the big man in red
And sprinkle this food outside on your way to bed."
