  • 14

Santa has gotten some questions about the Reindeer’s birthdays so we went out to verify directly from them what their birthdays were:
Dasher: March 28
Dancer: April 10
Prancer: April 16
Vixen: May 10
Comet: May 1
Cupid: April 6
Dunder/Donder/Donner (Rudolph’s dad): April 27
Blitzen/Blixem/Blixen: March 10

Rudolph: May 22

Reindeer are usually born in the spring, like most deer and Santa’s Reindeer are no exception, with some a bit earlier, and some a bit later.

Various people around the world spell the reindeer’s names slightly differently in their native languages, so we often include the alternate spellings!

Merry Christmas!

      It doesn’t really light up like a lighthouse but it does glow very nicely when he wants it to!
