Santa’s Reindeer

This won’t surprise a single woman.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter — usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers until 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, have to be female.

We should’ve known it all along: only women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night without having to stop and ask for directions.

From Jumbo Joke.

Merry Christmas!

Reminds me of stacking the hay bales on the wagon while my husband drove the tractor.

While it’s true women often worked harder than the menfolk down on the farm, some of my friends who grew up on farms said it was much easier than working in an office or factory, although they disliked it enough to vow never to do it again. Sure, you had to get up early and feed the animals, milk the cows, or do other chores, but then you settled down to a big breakfast followed by an hour of relaxation to digest everything. Then you went out into the fields and did what needed to be done, depending on the time of year, and came back in for the big lunch, with another hour for digestion. The rest of the afternoon was filled with miscellaneous chores, and then you went in for a big dinner, followed by TV or radio and bed. It was physically harder than ‘city work’ but mentally much easier and, since it was seasonal, you didn’t work hard all year round, or have the same-old-same-old day-in-day-out grind of the urban worker. Not that it’s easy being a farmer, especially these days, but it did have its advantages, according to what they’ve told me.
