My love of Reindeer


I love Reindeer. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Commet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen. And of course, the most famous Reindeer of allllllllllllllllll, Rudolph.

Now these Reindeer have always played a part in my love of Christmas. In fact, to me, along with Santa, are a visual reminder of all things Christmas. I guess they go hand in hand, since the Reindeer pull Santa's sleigh - but more than that, they took represent the magic of the season.

I mean come on, it took Rudolph's special nose to get Santa through the foggy Christmas Eve. They are the only deer that can fly. And they have a song all to themselves to help celebrate the season. And it's my favorite song.

The Dye Christmas Carol Sing a Long (more on that after) always required some organ practice by Dad. And while I love pretty much all Christmas songs, Ruldoph The Red Nosed Reindeer was the one I always asked him to play over and over again. And he did. Over and over again.
