Reindeer are a magical element of Christmas. These beautiful creatures fly Santa and his sleigh around the world in one night to deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls. It’s hard to think about Christmas and not have images of reindeer flying through your head, but they weren’t always a part of the Christmas story.
Reindeer have long been associated with Norse tales but it wasn’t until the 1800’s they became a part of Christmas tradition. They were first mentioned in a popular poem ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas’, also called ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. This poem established the names for eight of Santa’s reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. But Rudolph was nowhere in sight.
It wasn’t until 1939 that the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, was added. Rudolph captivated the hearts of both adults and kids alike and has been a part of Christmas tradition ever since.
Nowadays you find reindeer everywhere at Christmas time: on stockings, Christmas cards, lawn ornaments and as decorations on Christmas trees and mantles. If you’re a fan of reindeer then you’ll love dressing up your child in cute reindeer themed baby clothes. You can also take things a step further with a complete reindeer Christmas costume.
