You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid and Donner, and Blitzen.
But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?
It's that time of year where Christmas Carols are on every radio station, “Its a Wonderful Life” is playing on TV, and all the little children are anxiously awaiting what wonderful surprises might be under the tree come tomorrow morning. It truly is the night before Christmas. And did you know you can now track Santa and his sleigh as he makes his way around the world? Just go
and find out how close he is to your house. He really puts those reindeer through a workout this one night of the year; a 24-hour midnight race around the world.
Ever wonder how those reindeer train for such a demanding event? I'll let you in on a little secret.
Watch out for flying reindeer!
You see these signs all over the highways and roadways throughout America, even the world. Yep, that's right! These are the practice pathways for Santa's team of coursers. Throughout the year they race through mountains and valleys, woodlands and hills, up and down, and over the rivers and through the woods, but not necessarily to grandmother's house. Atleast, not until Christmas Eve.
I'm sure they take some time off after the mad dash of Christmas Eve. But not for too long, as they have to stay in shape for the next year. With that in mind, off they go, the experienced and the hopeful, of all Santa's reindeer training to be the next Dasher or Blitzen. Talk about hiding in plain sight! So next time you're out driving around and notice these yellow caution signs for flying reindeer, look around, you just might get lucky and catch a streaking red glimpse of Rudolph's glowy nose.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Kitty kissing Santa Claus!
