Every year, prior to the big excursion, Santa is
able to take a reindeer for a practice / exercise. They could go
anywhere in the world, and usually do. This story is a
collection of things Santa has seen and contemplated on these
annual journeys. One story involves finding a flower buried
in a rare California snow, another deals with the beauty of stars
on an open field, a third involves the sounds of carolers singing
in a hay ride.
