  1. Why is your nose red?

    Most people ask me this question. At first, the veterinarians thought it may have been sunburn or some kind of parasite. To be honest, I don't think they really know for sure, I was just born this way and there are no other known reindeers to have a red shiny nose.

  2. Do you always fly with Santa?

    No. I fly with the team whenever the weather is bad. I help light the way through the night, and the red light on my nose is not seen up in the sky.

    TOP

  3. Do you live with the rest of the reindeer?

    No. I have a special stable where I live with my family who are not flyers.

    TOP

  4. Do reindeer ever decorate their antlers?

    Yes we do! Especially during parades and special occasions. The elves love to decorate our antlers.

    TOP

  5. Is the TV show about you a true story?

    Yes. Pretty close to the truth. They consulted with me when they wrote the show. I love watching it every year.

    TOP

  6. What is your favorite food?

    It changes. Some times I cannot get enough oats and sometimes I am hooked on carrots. It depends on how cold it is out. In the wild, my family and I eat a lot of lichen.

    TOP

  7. Can you really fly?

    Yes. The elves put a secret ingredient in our feed that help us fly.

    TOP

  8. How do you stay warm?

    We reindeer have two coat layers. One of the layers is made up of hallow hairs that trap air and help hold in body heat - so it is an extra layer of insulation. It also makes us very buoyant in the water as well.

    TOP

  9. How are the reindeer so quiet when they land on rooftops so that they don't wake up the children when they land?

    Good question. Two things make this happen on Christmas Eve. First, when we land, it is a very soft landing, like floating down out of the sky like a feather. We practice this a lot. Second, there is a team of elves that got out ahead of us and prepare the landing area. They do a great job making sure the landing strip is sound proofed.

    TOP

  10. What is it like being around the elves?

    Fun, fun, and more fun. The elves that live at the North Pole are the nicest and friendliest creatures you will ever meet. They do everything they can to make us reindeer feel welcome and comfortable.

    TOP

  11. How did it feel going from a bullied reindeer to the lead reindeer.

    Well, vindicated. Bullying is not right whether you are a reindeer or a human and should never take place. Although, unfortunately it does. I do want to clear up, that I am not Santa's head reindeer. That is Dasher. My job is to lead the team when there are bad weather conditions. I take my flight orders from Dasher.

    TOP

  12. What does it feel like when your antlers fall off?

    Well, actually, we do not loose our antlers anymore like regular reindeer. We used to before we started eating the magic lichen that makes us fly, but not anymore. When we did lose them, it would kind of feel like it does when your hair is pulled out. A little pinch at first, then it goes away. Oh, by-the-way, that magic lichen we eat... we don't age either.

    TOP

  13. What is lichen?

    Lichen is a plant that has algae and fungus that grow together and is very, very tasty. The elves mix up a special recipe for us flying reindeer. We eat this right before take-off.

    TOP

  14. What do you do after pulling the sleigh on Christmas Eve?

    After our run on Christmas Eve, we take a very long nap. Then training starts again for the next season.

    TOP

  15. How did you handle being bullied by the other reindeer?

    It was very hard, and I was very sad. It wasn't until I talked about it with my mother that she made me realize that the others were doing it because they were uncertain something with themselves. The best thing I ever did was talk to my mom about the situation. I knew the bullying wouldn't last forever and I just tried to ignore it until it went away. I was strong and it did eventually go away and now I am very good friends with all of the other reindeer.

    TOP

  16. How far can you hear?

    Hmmm. Don't really know to be honest. We have never really measured the distance. I would assume the same distance that you can. I can tell you this, we can see in the dark quite well. The color of our eyes change when it gets dark at the North Pole and stay that way until the sun comes out again.

    TOP

  17. What is your favorite reindeer game?

    I really don't like reindeer games to be honest.

    TOP

  18. Do you like candy?

    Absolutely! All reindeer love candy, especially candy canes. Although, some of us do not know when to stop eating it and we get "tummy" aches, so we have to watch how much we eat.

    TOP

  19. Is it true that Donner and Blitzen's names were changed?

    Yes. Originally they were named, Dunder and Blixem.

    TOP

  20. What is your favorite place to visit?

    Suan Juan, Puerto, Rico. The entire team has fun when to fly to this city it is a small island off the coast of Puerto, Rico and we have to circle around a few times in order to get the landing angle correct.

    TOP

  21. Do you prefer flying at night or in the day?

    We all prefer to fly at night for a couple of reasons. First, it is easier for us to see farther at night and the view is spectacular when we lift up above the clouds and see the sky full of stars.

    TOP

  22. Do you like your theme song?

    Absolutely! It tells my tale perfectly.

    TOP

  23. Which reindeer do you get along with the best?

    I get along with Comet the best. He likes to pull practical jokes on all of the other reindeer... and sometimes I help out too.

    TOP

  24. Are you able to help build any of the toys?

    No. It is hard for us to hold tools with hooves, but sometimes we get to test them out for durability.

    TOP

  25. How well do you get along with Mrs. Claus?

    Quite well. Mrs. Claus if extremely kinds and she makes a point to stop and visit with all of us every day. She is also in charge of checking on our feed mixture so that we have just the right amount of all of the ingredients.

    TOP

  26. What is your favorite holiday besides Christmas?

    Earth Day. Since I have experience flying all over the world, I really enjoy seeing people who are trying to conserve the planet to keep it beautiful.
