  1. Could he catch Santa with this forgotten sack of presents? Were these two young reindeer up to the journey? #W8Padvent @evangelinecluck

  3. This is going to take forever. I wonder, if I get a few more reindeer could I get airborne?W8Padvent@JEFoxley

    Then shadows like arrows all guided the sleigh,
    And sent Santa galloping off on his way!

  5. Dancing and dashing
    Let's whizz through the snow,
    Faster and faster,
    It's Christmas, ho ho!


    Snowflakes are falling
    The stars shining bright,
    Jingle bells ringing
    It's Christmas tonight!

  6. On Christmas Eve,
    Santa races through the snow.
    Shadows from the trees,
    Point the way to go!

  7. Each passing tree
    casts a shadowy shape
    as a festive James Bond
    makes his dashing escape!

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
