In early December the Reindeer In Here book and plush “magically” arrive for your child, setting the stage for a new yearly Christmas tradition. It’s their FIRST gift of the holiday season from Santa — and it came early! As the parent surprises their child with this unexpected early Christmas present, they introduce them to the special “untold” story of the reindeer.
As the story unfolds, the child learns that many years ago Santa asked his reindeer for some help in learning about each child’s true Christmas wishes. Santa told his reindeer that while he knew of children all over the world, only some wrote him letters — so he wanted a way to KNOW EACH CHILD BETTER! One special little reindeer who was born with one antler smaller than the other and big blue eyes quickly suggested a way. The little reindeer said Santa should send some of his reindeer EARLY in the month of December to stay with the children so Santa could learn as much as possible about each child – where they live, what they like, what they don’t like, what they do each day, where they go, who their family is, and where Santa should leave presents on Christmas Eve. Then every night while the child sleeps with the reindeer next to him or her, the reindeer writes notes to Santa detailing their daily adventures.
From that moment on, the bond begins with the child and their reindeer as they uncover what they should do with it every day leading up to Christmas. After naming their own reindeer, the child is encouraged to show it around, taking it to a different place each day, both inside and out of the house so that when Santa comes on Christmas Eve, he knows as much as possible about the child, how good they’ve been and exactly where to deliver the presents.
On Christmas Eve, the child should put their reindeer under the tree so it can greet Santa. After Santa finds the reindeer, it will go with him to guide his sleigh back to the North Pole until next year — when the child’s Christmas reindeer will return in early December to see his friend once more!
This holiday tradition will unfold for many years to come as the child looks forward to that magical time of year when their very own special reindeer comes back to see them again!
