Building the Reindeer Stable
I have got to tell you. This morning I sneezed and glitter went everywhere. Like, everywhere hehehehe.
The kind and wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Jones are letting us elves live at their house while we prepare for Holiday Extravaganza.
They are great people. They are…but the look Mrs. Jones gave me when my glitter went in her coffee. Oh boy, I laughed so hard I cried…and you know what elf tears are made of, right? MORE GLITTER!!!
Anyway, anyway enough jokes for one day, right?
Us elves are still working on the stable for the reindeer friends.
Did you know that Rudolph isn’t the only reindeer in the world with a red nose? In fact, reindeer have a dense makeup of blood like vessels, about 25 percent more than us elves, which carry red, oxygen rich blood to their noses.
Rudolph is special because his nose glows, but it actually isn’t uncommon to see red-nosed reindeer!! Cool, right?
Reindeer don’t only live in the North Pole either. They live in cold weather climates like Alaska, Canada, Greenland and northern Europe.
Even though us elves might find those places cold, we try to remember this is how our reindeer friends like it. They get the five-star accommodation of their dreams: drafty walls and plenty of their favorite foods.
Reindeer feast on herbs, ferns, mosses, grasses, shoots, fungi and leaves. We provide plenty of these foods for the friends, but also make sure they have cotton candy.
It’s the cotton candy and Santa’s special wish that make Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comit, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph soar through the night sky!
And if you go to Holiday Extravaganza, and why wouldn’t you, you’ll get to see a few of these special guys and even feed them!
Talk to you next week, friends
