Hi there, friends! It’s Rosy Reindeer, here. Just wanted to check in with you readers of Gatherings to let you know that we reindeer were getting ready for our big night! You know that I’m not one to brag…but aren’t my antlers to die for??? I’ve worked so hard to get them ‘just right’ for the big trip!

You can see how hard we’ve been working to get into shape! Long runs through the snow…

Lots of good grooming from the snow boys…sort of like personal trainers…

We’ve reviewed the tapes of last year’s journey…to see if there is anywhere we need to improve…

We’ve practiced our take off and landings…

And , even spent some time brushing up with Santa…

Now I’m sure, being the smart, ‘in-the-know’ women that you are, you are aware that the Santa uses only us ‘girls’ to pull his sleigh! It’s been that way since the beginning, of course, but there’s always some guy who thinks he should be the one leading the group. Sometimes, they will try to sneak in…tie their antlers on and fool the old man. But, Santa is no dummy…he catches them every time!Just look at that sad reindeer…shame on him!

Every one knows that:
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?
