And here comes Rudolph, if the long way 'round:

BLITZEN (didn't get anywhere with the blintzes except a full stomach)
BLITZER
BLITHER (what a blithering idiot does)
BLATHER
BATHER
EARTH
RATE
EAT
AT
A
AN
AND
END
PEND
DUPE
PULED
PULLED
UPHELD
UPHOLD
RUDOLPH

Not terribly efficient, and a sort of reductio-ad-absurdum technique. Within broad limitations, it could be used to make just about anything out of anything else.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good day!

Now that Rudolph found his way
and now that this is the first day of Christmas,
we could take Rudolph and make a Partridge in a Pear Tree
out of his name
(probably according to your way wofa..)
and proceed thru the Twelve Days of Christmas.

WHATEVER; MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

Good job, one and all. Hope you had fun with it, and hope you had a lovely, peaceful Christmas. :0)

(We just might be able to get "Auld...Lang...Syne" without ever leaving four-letter words. Ya think?)
