RUDOLPH - THE RED NOSED REINDEER

Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer is the most famous Reindeer of All.

The story begins because young Rudolf was teased by the other Reindeer, because of his large glowing, red nose.

All of the other Reindeer, use to laugh and call him names and they wouldn't let poor Rudolf, join in any Reindeer games

Rudolf's luck changes when Christmas Eve turned foggy and Santa worried that he wouldn't be able to deliver gifts

to all the good children that night, former outcast saved Christmas by leading Dasher! Dancer! Prancer! Vixen! Comet!

Cupid! Donner! And oh yes Santa's sleigh by the light of his red nose.
