Much has been made of the cold and foggy night which brought Rudolph onto Santa’s team, but he is a late comer as we all know. Yes – ladies and gentleman, boys and girls – Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, and Cupid all preceded the red-nosed star of song and film. But when it comes the the true “Harts of Christmas,” Dunder and Blixem, that Thunder and Lightening to you and me, were the original stars. Isn’t it amazing what a good publicist can do for a scrawny red-nosed fawn? Give me Thunder and Lightening any day!
True Christmas harts fly
Swift Lightening and Thunder
Tow Santa’s sleigh high
