Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a male reindeer with a glowing red nose. He
is known as Santa’s ninth reindeer and is the leader of all the
reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve. His nose is so
bright that it leads the path through the harsh winter weather. The
story of Rudolph has been changed into many forms such as a song,
television special, and a film. In very many countries he has become a
figure of Christmas Folklore.
The story tells
the experiences of Rudolph’s life and his unusual bright red nose. The

the others. Rudolph proves himself one Christmas Eve after Santa Claus
sees Rudolph’s nose and ask him to lead his sleigh for the evening.
After Santa asked him that he was finally treated better by the other
reindeer for his boldness.
