    A little known Christmas fact...

    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.
    A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU

      I must say it came as a huge surprise to me. You would not like to hear what I normally say about women drivers..

        Hi Just as a side point should the other naughty reindeer who discriminated against Ruldoplh for having a physically different nose be given ASBOs for anti-social behaviour?

          Just a point from the Scandinavian Journal of Cervine Management

          Both sexes grow antlers, which (in the Scandinavian variety) for old males fall off in December, for young males in the early spring, and for females, summer which help them to camouflage.

          So potentially the reindeers could be young males! Hardy Bucks!!!!!!!

            I would think the Reindeer would have to be adult to pull the weight of a sleigh full of presents and a big old guy in a red suit..

                How true. Even in the days of satellite navigation men still get lost by ignoring a women's voice on it. Maybe they think it belongs in the back with the back seat drivers.
