Did you know No:33 Christmas edition


Hello everyone it is the night before Christmas, well the day before Christmas, as in Christmas Eve so this Monday I again I am doing a Christmas facts post with facts that may or may not be true.

The image of Santa flying his sleigh dates back to 1819

Rudolph the reindeer was created as a marketing gimmick to encourage children to buy Christmas colouring books.

The original Rudolph did not have a red nose.

It was Clement Moore who introduced more reindeer for Santa their names were Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet,Cupid, Duner and Blixlem which later became Dooer and Blitzen


Male reindeer shed their antlers in winter, however, so the reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh are more than likely female or castrated.
