Oh look – its the red-nosed reindeer!
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is perhaps, one of the most well-known and loved stories to occupy a permanent niche amongst the rest of the Christmas legends. Rudolph the reindeer was an idea originated by a poor copywriter residing in Chicago named Robert May, specically for his daughter Barbara. It was gifted to her as a poem titled: ‘Night Before Christmas’.
The story was centered around Rudolph, who was the only reindeer in the world with a big shiny red nose instead of a normal one. Everyone around him teased and made fun of him, nicknaming him the ‘red-nosed reindeer’, which embarrased him. Even his own mother, father and sister were mortified by both his appearance and presence, which deepened Rudolph’s self-pity and depression. He was lonely as well. One fateful night on Christmas eve, Santa was preparing his sleigh to be ready for his annual trip around the world, along with his team of eight reindeers – Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen and 4 others. The team was greatly cheered on as they got ready to embark on the trip.
Santa had been wondering how could he distribute his toys now and how to locate chimneys. He personally requested Rudolph to lead his sleigh. Rudolph guided Santa and the rest safely amidst the rain, fog, snow and sleet. From that night on, Rudolph became the most famous reindeer and a great hero to many in his community.
