Did you know Rudolph has Blue Eyes?

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

NOTE_reindeerDid you know that Rudolph has blue eyes? At least this is true in the winter. Even more interesting, did you know that his eyes change to gold depending on the season? You can read all about the blue and gold changing retinas in reindeer in this article.

For an animal that is so familiar to us in winter, it’s probably one animal you don’t think about in the summer too often. It’s not like we see reindeer in our natural habitat.

When it’s winter, you think about Santa and then Rudolph comes to mind soon after. Can you name all Santa’s reindeer?

You can learn all about each one of Santa’s reindeer here. This is where I learned that Vixon has a crush on Cupid and hopes to marry him someday. Who knew?

If after reading this post about reindeer, you decide you’d like one of your own, you can do that… right here. I don’t recommend it. Just connect with Santa’s reindeer on Facebook. Yes, they have their own page.

It’s easier to own some Letters from Lilly stationery with the reindeer design on it. Our reindeer won’t eat your garden and you won’t have to clean up after it each day.
