How many reindeer are there?

Santa Claus has nine loyal reindeer who help him visit homes around the world on Christmas Eve.

As early as 1823, the poem A Visit From Saint Nicholas or better known as Twas The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore referred to the “eight little reindeer”.

It wasn’t until 1939 that Rudolph came onto the scene to make nine.

The reindeer pull Santa’s sleigh across the sky, defying gravity with their magic and making sure all presents are delivered to well-behaved children.

What are the reindeer called?

You most likely know the names of at least some of the names of Santa’s reindeer from the 1949 hit Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. So let’s summarize all the names:

  • dasher
  • dancer
  • Prancer
  • vixen
  • comet
  • cupid
  • thunder
  • flash
  • And of course Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

What are the lyrics to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer?

The famous Christmas carol about the boisterous reindeer accompanies every good festive sing-along. Here are all the lyrics so you can sing the song to the end next time everyone gathers around the piano…

“You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,

“But do you remember

“The most famous reindeer ever

“Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer

“Had a very shiny nose

“And if you’ve ever seen it

“One would even say it glows

“All the other reindeer

“I used to laugh and scold him

“They never left poor Rudolph

“Join in the reindeer games

“Then, on a foggy Christmas Eve,

“Santa Claus came to say

“Rudolph with your nose so bright,

“Won’t you take my sled tonight?

“How then did all the reindeer love him,

“When they cried out for joy,

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

“You will go down in history

“Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer

“Had a very shiny nose

“And if you’ve ever seen it,

“You would even say it shines,

“And all the other reindeer

“Laughed and scolded him,

“They never left poor Rudolph

“Join in the reindeer games,

“Then, on a foggy Christmas Eve,

“Santa Claus came to say

“Rudolph with your nose so bright,

“Won’t you take my sled tonight?

“How then did all the reindeer love him,

“When they cried out for joy,

“Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer,

“You will go down in history.”
