Ten Christmas Songs that Mention Reindeer





by Sandra Merville Hart

Many of us grew up watching Christmas specials like Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. And who could forget The Santa Clause movies? I look forward to watching them every year.

It’s that time of year again. I thought it would be fun to search for songs that mention reindeer. I didn’t have any trouble finding them. Here’s my list:

  • “Up on the Housetop” – Up on the housetop, reindeer pause
  • “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”
  • “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”
  • “Run Rudolph Run”
  • “Here Comes Santa Claus” – Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
  • “The Christmas Song” – to see if reindeer really know how to fly
  • “The Night Before Christmas” – eight tiny reindeer
  • “This is That Time of the Year” – To Dasher, Dancer, Blitzen, Prancer
  • “Must by Santa” – Eight little reindeer pull his sleigh
  • “Little Saint Nick” – Run run reindeer

Can you think of others?

Merry Christmas!
