Dept. of Agriculture gives Santa OK to cross border with reindeer

Posted: Updated:
NORTH POLE - Santa has gotten the all-clear for entry into the US.

The Department of Agriculture says Saint Nick and his reindeer may enter the country over any northern border port, starting at 5 p.m. central time.

The agency has waived the disease-testing requirement typically in place for those bringing livestock across the border. Officials say Santa's reindeer have been found to be healthy -- and are able to prance and paw with each hoof.

But there are some stipulations to their arrival in the states. The reindeer must answer to the names Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph -- and must never have been fed anything other than hay, sugar plums and gingerbread.
