Can Santa’s sleigh be a different color than red?

Dear Ernest,

Can Santa’s sleigh be a different color than red?


Yes. It frequently is a different color. Most people just think it is red.

Santa loves the color red. And red is a natural color for something as fast as the sleigh. But the truth is that the sleigh could be any color. I remember the year it was white. That was rare. It was hard to see Santa in a snowy place like the North Pole when he sleigh is white!

The color of Santa’s sleigh is kind of like the name he gives to the sleigh each year: unique.
