Christmas funny: Evidence Santa’s reindeer were all female

Published 11:06am Tuesday, December 13, 2011

I received this from a friend today and went to Snopes.com to check the facts before posting. Turns out, in all liklihood, Santa’s reindeer were all female. The e-mail from my inbox is below.

“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 man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.”
