All the reindeer got together and decided that it would be fun to let everyone in the world decide who should guide Santa's sleigh this year!  (It was actually Rudolph's idea).

So choose your favourite reindeer and, weather permitting (see the legal notices  below), the reindeer with the most votes will lead Santa's sleigh this Christmas!  The reindeer ask that you vote only once a day (otherwise you might end up on Santa's Naughty List! *wink*).

Merry Christmas!

Legal Notices:
Voting results are tabulated by the accounting firm of Elf, Elf & Galoshes.  Santa Claus and the reindeer gleefully agree to abide by the results of this North Pole Christmas Poll with the condition that Rudolph shall guide Santa's sleigh should the weather on Christmas Eve, in Santa Claus' sole opinion, require it. (Think of it as a Santa "clause " *wink*).

Otherwise, all terms and conditions relating to Christmas are in full force and effect as per the usual Santa Claus clauses.

A Grumpy Old Elf answers your questions about Santa Claus' reindeeer:

  • What are all the reindeers names?
    Let's see, there's Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy... no wait, that's me! I'm the grumpy elf! And a grumpy elf would never tell you all the reindeer's names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid and Donner & Blitzen! And Sleepy and Dopey and... (Hey, did you just trick me?)
  • What are the names of Santa's reindeer?
    Well, I don't know if they're really Santa's reindeer. After all it's the elves that have to feed the reindeer we call Hungry, brush the reindeer we call Harry and cleanup after that reindeer we call Po... oops, I better not say his nickname or I'll get into trouble again! Then I'll really be a grumpy elf!
  • Are there really eight little reindeer?
    The way Santa Claus's reindeer eat before they fly? I don't know if I'd call them eight LITTLE reindeer! But will they ever try my Christmas haggis, noooo!? And you wonder why I'm so grumpy!
  • Santa's reindeer names?
    Why does everyone think Santa has a reindeer called Names? That would be the worst name for a reindeer yet! Well, except maybe for Donder. No wonder he changed his name to Donner! Santa's reindeer, Names. That is funny! If I wasn't such a grumpy elf, I'd laugh! I'll bet you're going to ask about Santa's reindeer List, Santa's reindeer Song and Santa's reindeer Pictures too! Oh boy, a reindeer called Pictures! I'll have to put a photo of him up on the webpage too!
  • What are Santa's reindeers in order?
    In order of what? Like from the worst breath to the mintiest fresh? Guess which reindeer I always get stuck in order with! And it isn't Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid or Donner & Blitzen!
  • Can you name one of Santa's reindeer?
    One? I could name them all! But will Santa ever let me name a single reindeer? Noo! HE has to name them all! No wonder I'm a grumpy elf! And what names does he give them? Names like Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid and Donner & Blitzen! If I could name a reindeer I think I'd call it Flying Haggis or something kewl like that! So no, I can NOT name one of Santa's reindeer if you must know! Now you've made me really grumpy!
