Little wonder we stumble in life.

BlogFestivus #9 – Rudolph


He was glad to have been able to spend his holidays in Antarctica. Unlike the North Pole, Antarctica had been eternal daylight, but he was still appreciative to have finally seen this South Pole. He had always been curious…

But the time had come. Galloping into the air, he pointed his nose north and began his journey back home.

His nose was like a beacon in the sky. As it became dark, the first reindeer he spotted were Donner and Blitzen, bucking and running around together. They stopped at the sight of him and immediately followed, as though Rudolph had a hypnotic effect, a natural born leader.

He eventually passed over woods. He saw Vixen, Comet and Cupid through the trees, a threesome of love and jealousy. But as they saw Rudolph, they followed obediently, squabbling into line behind him.

It was getting colder now. The chill of snow welcoming Rudolph, his nose burning brighter through the cold. It was a physical adaption. Rudolph’s body was made for this weather after all. It was hell passing over the equator, but he was nearing home now…

As the last three reindeer appeared, they were the most stubborn to follow Rudolph but peer pressure got them in the end.

Peer pressure always was their weak point. That’s how Rudolph had been teased so long. Rudolph could identify the specific reasons each reindeer used to tease him.

But that was all in the past. Ancient history.
