santahat Ask Elf Ernest: How do reindeer land on the roof without breaking it?

Taviyannah asks another question: How do reindeer land on the roof without breaking it?

Another great question!

I had to ask this one of Santa himself. He said you're a very smart kid and that it is a fair question to ask. The reindeer themselves don't weigh very much at all but there are usually eight or nine of them hitched to Santa's sleigh so together they can weigh a lot. Plus there is the sleigh and, of course, Santa in the sleigh. None of that is light.

Santa told me that when the reindeer approach a house he has to make a judgment. Sometimes it isn't because a house has a weak roof it is because Santa's sleigh is ginormous and it just won't fit on the roof. Other times, like in places where people live with grass roofs, Santa of course can't land there.

"The sleigh," Santa told me, "is a very high tech piece of machinery. It may just look like a sleigh pulled by reindeer. But you already know about the cookie and cocoa dispenser, and about Santa's sleighcam and radio and other features. But would you believe that Santa's sleigh is also a hover craft?"

That's a new revelation. So when Santa can't land on a roof, he hovers the sleigh above it for as long as he needs to do his work.

Fascinating, isn't it?
