Santa’s sleigh is the vehicle he travels in on his Christmas Eve route to deliver presents to houses. It is his busiest day of the year. A sleigh is a type of large sledge, with one or two benches to seat Santa and the occasional elf. Santa’s sleigh is always pulled by eight reindeers, nine if you include Rudolph.
A sleigh is a large sled that’s pulled by horses, or in the case of Santa Claus, by reindeer. A sleigh is usually big enough for at least two passengers to ride in. Most sleighs travel across snow or ice, sliding on smooth runners, and are pulled by one or more horses.
