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!
