Reindeer Facts and Fiction-

  Reindeer  Games and Facts-
‘Tis the season to be jolly! What could be more merry than Santa’s sleigh? Well, without his dexterous reindeer, Old Saint Nick’s mode of transportation would not get very far. So today, we would like to share a few fun facts about this festive species.
1. Reindeer or caribou?
In Europe, they’re known as reindeer. In North America, the term reindeer is used for Eurasian populations, while the name caribou refers to wild populations found in the country. However, both reindeer and caribou are classified as the same genus and species, rangifer tarandus. So for the purpose of simplicity and sticking with the holiday theme, we’ll call them reindeer for the rest of this blog

Nice and Naughty (Operation Reindeer Retrieval Book 9) Viola Grace   - Reindeer escape to have fun and find love 


With Rudolph facing off against Santa, Christmas is on the line, along with her freedom. 


Ru was born in a forest and soon recruited by Santa. He wanted her to help harness the remains of long-dead deities. Christmas is coming into fashion in the human world and that is a lot of energy to take advantage of. He moves her back in time, and together, they build the workshop. 
Ru has one problem. Santa tricked her and locked the collar around her neck. Her other forms are no longer hers to command, and without them, she can’t be whole. 
It has taken her over a thousand years, but she finally has a way to claim her freedom, and if Santa cooperates, Christmas won’t be hurt. 

2. Males AND females grow antlers.
Male antlers may grow twice as long as their female counterparts; still, reindeer are the only deer species to practice gender equality when it comes to their most memorable characteristic. Males begin to grow antlers in February and females start in May. Both stop growing around the same time, but a male’s antlers typically drop off in November, while a female’s remain through winter until their calves are born in spring. If you’re following this logic, our good pal Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer was most likely a female, because she was rocking her antlers on Christmas Eve.


You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. 

The song grated on his nerves every time someone hummed it. But what could he expect, being named Danny Grinch and living in Christmas Town U.S.A.? Being the wood craftsman and the creator of Unique Toys didn’t help matters. He was the go to guy for crafted toys around the holidays and while everyone else were enjoying the season. He worked up till Christmas Eve to fill orders.

But maybe this year would be different with his new shop helper, Tia Davis. With skin like cappuccino and a silver streak in her hair, she came in to the shop each morning with a cup of hot chocolate and a smile just for him. Danny felt his attraction grow with each passing day and vowed to make Tia his naughty little elf. Especially after their first kiss, he saw another side of Tia that wasn’t just cheerful. She was wickedly arousing -- and damn if he didn’t want more.

10 Festive Reindeer Facts
 Hard antlers start out soft and fuzzy.
Since antlers fall off and grow back every year, a reindeer is said to be in “velvet” while the new pair of antlers grow. After the velvet dries up, the reindeer unveils its hard antler cores by rubbing its deciduous horns against a rock or tree. Ta-da!

Reindeer hooves are anatomically noisy.
“Up On The Housetop” and other holiday jingles often imply that the “click, click, click” we hear upon Santa’s arrival is the result of his herd’s stampeding feet. In fact, many hoofed animals make loud noises when their feet meet hard surfaces, but not reindeer. The metallic sound of reindeer hooves is actually due to tendons slipping over their foot bones as they walk.
