Jan 23 Reindeer

Jan 23 Reindeer
This poor reindeer was left out when I packed away the Christmas decorations.
She's part of a bell that chimes in the wind rarther nicely so she will stay for a while longer.

The Reindeer Myth

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 man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night
and not get lost. Link to more info
