Wikipedia: Santa Claus’s reindeer
Santa Claus’s reindeer form a team of flying reindeer traditionally held to pull the sleigh of Santa Claus and help him deliver Christmas gifts. The commonly cited names of the reindeer are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. They are based on those used in the 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (commonly called “The Night Before Christmas"), which is arguably the basis of the reindeers’ popularity.

The enduring popularity of the Christmas song “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” has led to Rudolph often joining the list.

From a colleague: Why are Dasher, Dancer always taking coffee breaks, Santa is asked. “Because they are my star bucks,” he says. #humour
