Christmas fun

Until Chinese professor and professional barber Clement Moore wrote ‘The Night Before Christmas’, lore had that there were actually 12 reindeer on Father Christmas’ sleigh. They were:

  • Donner and Blitzen (Thunder and Lightning)
  • Sonne and Mond (Sun and Moon)
  • Leben and Tod (Life and Death)
  • Hoffnung and Verzweiflung (Hope and Despair)
  • Liebe and Hass (Love and Hatred)
  • Darmentleerung and Harn (Defaecation and Urine)

On Urine, on Despair, on Hatred and Shite! Nope. Looks like Clement made the right choice.

Ta, David.
