On December 25, 2009 at approximately 12:15 a.m. CST, I stepped out to let my dogs go pottie.
I was about to step back inside when I heard a strange noise. The sound was like many tiny bells jingling from a distance.
As I stood there on the steps, the sound of bells grew louder and that is when to my amazement, what appeared to be a tiny sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer came into view.
The object(s) appeared from the North at an approximate elevation of 1500 ft. I would estimate it's speed at less than 100 mph.
As the object(s) drew closer, I could make out the flailing gallop of the reindeer. The object as a whole had a redish glow, leaving a sparkly trail of magic dust behind it.
As the object(s) passed overhead I could clearly hear a "Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!
I had a distinct feeling that many children were going to get a visit this night.
I lost sight of this object as it passed beyond my rooftop.
