Was Rudolph Pregnant?

Do we take things too seriously? Perhaps this will bring you a much needed laugh amidst holiday stress….

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 female.  And probably pregnant as well.

So, to all you multi-tasking Moms out there!   Think of those pregnant reindeer, hauling the jolly fat man and his load all around the world in one night, not getting lost, and probably cursing that baby on their bladder……   Blessings on all the hard-working mothers the world over!

Rudolph-Approved! Wholesome gifts from the North Pole (and Ann Arbor!!)

Not to be Abominably Alarming or anything, but it is now just 72 hours until Christmas Morning! If your opportunity to create meaningful gifts has somehow slipped away from you, why not slip over to Indigo Forest?  We’ve taken pains to search out special treasures for all ages……..from sweetly carved barnyard animals by Ann Arbor Artisans to beautiful children’s books shipped from England. We still have many stocking stuffers like “Sticky Stones (magnetized ‘stones’ in a bright bag of your choice, great for car rides!) and pocket puzzles (remember Grandpa’s little metal twists?) and the award-winning “Think-A-Lots” (amazing bag of quality trinkets, 15 possible games, and a guaranteed easier waiting time for your family this year at restaurants, doctors’ offices, and everywhere else.)

Perhaps you have an accident-prone friend or someone moving away from home?  We have sturdy Naturopathic First Aid kits at Half-Off, and Kleen Kanteen bottles at two-for-one.   Perhaps you need $3 hand-carved sets of rosewood chopsticks,  import gifts of crafted clove boxes or hand-poured ‘honeypots’ with botantical glowing candles?   Or maybe you just need some “Christmas Spirit” essential oil to spray about the house, smoothing nerves and uplifting everyone’s spirits with the lovely smells of pine, clove, and the traditional smells of a great Christmas!

Our Hours for the rest of the week are as follows:

Wednesday 10 am-6 pm, Thursday 9 am – 5 pm, and Friday 10 am – 2 pm.

Hope to see you there -  Merry Christmas from our family to your family!!
