Once a year,
every year,
the seven uncles gather.
Shaggy coats,
scarves of red.
Two tall antlers
on each head.

Is it their niece
they've come to see?
Surely, yes.

Is it their job
they've come to do?
Most definitely.

And is she eager
to join in the fun?
Absolutely!
Here is a playful tribute
to a famous team
of eight relatives who, once a year, every
year, bring delight to children.
