You know Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen. There's also Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. And who's ever going to forget Rudolph? With the holiday season around the corner, you can' think about presents and Santa Claus without thinking of his reindeer. So, which one of Santa's reindeer are you?
If you believe in the magic of Christmas, you would know the story of Santa's reindeer. Every Christmas Eve, they pull Santa's sleigh so he can deliver presents all over the world. The idea of Santa's reindeer came about in the popular 1823 story A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore. While this is the official name, you might know it as "The Night Before Christmas." In this story, Santa's eight reindeer were introduced. It would take over 100 years for Rudolph to join the group!
Rudolph was created by Robert L. May as Santa's ninth reindeer in a 1939 booklet. This red-nosed reindeer would go on to overshadow the eight original and even have movies and songs made in his honor. Are you Rudolph or are you one of the original eight?
If you're adorable and loving, you're probably like Cupid! For those who are hyperactive and energetic, you might be zooming around like Comet. Are you the sweet and slightly shy Rudolph? There's only one way to find out! Answer our questions, and we'll let you know which reindeer you're flying as!
