When Golfo Saved Christmas is a story about our pet dog, Golfo. However, there are other interesting characters in the book, and we wanted to introduce them to you.
For those of you that have read the book already, we’ve made this a little more interesting by including a question about each character. When you think you know the answer, click the question and the answer will appear underneath.
Golfo is the hero of the story. One year, Santa asked Golfo for help to deliver the presents, and without him, Christmas would not have arrived for many children around the world.
However, even heroes get nervous, and Golfo was no exception when Santa asked for his help.
Luna is a 9 years old, and loves Christmas. She had no idea that her pet dog would end up helping out Santa one year.
Harry is five years old, and can’t get to sleep on Christmas Eve. He get’s so excited.
Harry and Luna always remember to leave out something for Santa to eat and drink, but this year they almost forgot to leave something for the reindeer.
Santa doesn’t need an introduction.
He’s known by different names – Santa Claus, Papa Noel, Father Christmas & Saint Nicholas. Once a year, Santa flies around the world on his sleigh, pulled by his reindeer, delivering presents to all of the good boys and girls while they sleep.
Every Christmas Eve, Prancer is one of the first reindeer to be attached to the sleigh.
However, one year, the year in the story, Prancer has a problem and cannot continue with the deliveries.
Behind every great man there’s a great woman. In Santa’s case, that would be Mrs. Claus. Throughout the year, she helps Santa and the Elves prepare for the one big night of the year.
After Santa leaves for his deliveries, Mrs. Claus relaxes with head elf, Bernard.
Bernard is in charge of the Elves. He works directly with Santa, checking off the boys and girls on the good list. Each one needs a present, so working with the other elves, Bernard makes sure all the toys are made, wrapped, marked with the name of the child, and placed in Santa’s sack.
