Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in Latin

Someone sent me this copy of Rudolph in Latin:

Rudolphus rubrinasus
Rudolphus rubrinasus fulgentissimo naso,
vidisti et si eum dicas quoque candere.
Omnes tarandi ceteri ridebant vocantes nomina;
non sinebant Rudolphum interessa ludentes.
olim crassa nocte Christi, Nicolaus it dictum:
“ Rudolphe, naso tam claro, agesne traham meam?”
Qui tum tarandis amor conclamantibus eum,
“ Rudolphe, rubrinase descendes historia!”

Please notice that in the sixth line, the Latin literally refers to "the night of Christ." That's who Christmas is really about--Jesus Christ, the Lord of the world!

Amen! Come Lord Jesus! Maranatha!
