My friend Kelly sent me a very funny story about Santa and his reindeer which no doubt must be true!
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game,
while both male and female reindeers grow antlers in
the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers
at the beginning of winter, usually late November to
Female reindeers 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
fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost!!
I have one more stocking to offer this year. I made this from felted ivory wool that I have embellished with vintage dogwood appliques and the most gorgeous hand sewn beaded trim. My mother in law gave me this trim, it was made for her in Korea over 35 years ago!
I’m going to pop this into my Etsy shop and if it doesn’t sell then I will have to keep this beauty for myself!
