I have been busy with Thanksgiving activities and Christmas decorations these past few days and haven’t had the time to make regular posts. All this reminded me about a little story I once read about reindeer. I pass it along only for informational purposes.
Male and Female Reindeer
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers til after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen had to be a girl.
We should have known. Only women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost!
