DumpNFL – No Football Here

Yes, it’s another NFL “Football Free” Sunday. There’s still Christmas shopping to do and you still haven’t seen “Star Wars – The Last Jedi” yet. And you still haven’t gotten your work clothes washed because you fell off the wagon, so to speak, and watched some of the crappy pre-Christmas College Football bowls. The Camellia Bowl? Give me a break.

One “Prancer” Short of a Sleigh Ride

The Sun reports on Santa’s Reindeer.

The reindeer which pull Santa’s sleigh are thought to have come from a poem by Clement C. Moore, “A Visit From St Nicholas”.

Alas, poor Prancer. I knew ye well.

It is more commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas”, and includes reference to eight named reindeer.

Originally, the verse which includes the names has them down as: “Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!

“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!”

But now-a-days Dunder and Blixem are often referred to Donner and Blitzen.

Although Rudolf is the most famous of the reindeer, he is not one of the core eight first mentioned.
