Reindeer Facts


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 till 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've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

Good post. I loved the picture. As I am a confessed and won't think of recovering "harvester" of pics, I couldn't resist "borrowing" that reindeer pic. And I will mention where it came from and add a link to you when I use it between now and Christmas. That is if you don't mind.
