This came to us from a friend:

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.

When we were done laughing, we did our research and sure enough the antler story is true.

Plus: Here’s something to do you with your children or grandchildren: Visit the U.S. government’s North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) website, which has been tracking Santa and the flight of the reindeer for more than 50 years.

Happy Holidays, to all of you from all of us at WVFC. We’ll be back on Dec. 26.
