How would Santa manage without his Reindeer (les rennes, ou Caribou au Canada)? Did you know that reindeer became particularly popular after the poem « The Night Before Christmas » in which the reindeer are called: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. Of course most people also know « Rudolph » from the song « Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer ». Let’s hope the sky is clear on Christmas eve so that we can see them flying overhead.
