Reindeer Escapes Christmas Event, Then it GETS WEIRD


I just love Christmas and Christmas songs don’t you? Like “O’ Little Town of Bethleham”, “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”, “Frosty the Snowman, and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”…..”You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixon”….but do you know Bjorn, the Runaway deer? I didn’t think so!


In a story from the Daily Mail:

Open-mouthed onlookers could barely believe their eyes when a reindeer flew down a suburban street – but not in the way you would think.

Bjorn the reindeer took off from the Carlton Hill Tesco store in Nottingham after he was startled by a car’s horn, leaving traffic chaos in his wake.

The animal had been part of a Christmas event, alongside another reindeer called Thor and a Santa’s sleigh, when he galloped off and narrowly missed a bus in the process.


Thankfully a group ran after the spooked animal and caught him shortly afterwards.

Gemma Green saw Bjorn sprint past her house and said: ‘I was putting some Christmas cards up in the window and just saw it come charging down the street.

‘Then I saw a group of people following it.

‘It was quite strange. It’s like the scene from Arthur Christmas where Santa loses his reindeer. I thought I was seeing things at first.

Not too surprising is it? I mean after all, reindeer are animals of “flight”. I hope all you kids will be keeping a close watch out for Rudolph and company.  And remember if you see a reindeer in Notingham  or your local town, running down the street ….well, it just might be Bjorn “the runaway deer” or a distant relative. Now Dash Away! Dash Away! Dash Away ALL!
