Reindeer gets ready to fly….

Norman my white nosed reindeer…. _20191031_181112

Norman is hoping to be a stand in Reindeer at Christmas. He’s wants to be an understudy for Santa’s team.

He says that he’s waited five hundred years for the chance and his nose has turned white with age. He’s wearing his favourite stripey woolley jumper and has borrowed a set of Santa’s braces to keep his trousers up. He feels the cold at the North Pole because of his age.

Norman almost went out in 1960 when Dasher had a pulled hamstring from dashing and crashing about, but he missed out when a reindeer called Snowy took Dashers’ place.

Norman says his sense of direction can let him down. He once flew to the South Pole by mistake but did make friends with the King Penguins down there. He now takes a blow up globe and a compass with him so that he can find his way around the world.

Norman has a month to prove himself so he can go on this year’s Christmas run.
