Reindeers are the species located in the arctic region of the world. Reindeer is a popular deer during Christmas season. It is believed that Santa’s imaginary reindeer helps to pull up the sleighs helping Santa to deliver the Christmas gifts.

We all have grew up with and are familiar with the animated stories, films of Santa and his reindeer, this is what comes to our mind when we think of Christmas season.

It is believed that Rudolph (the Red Nose Reindeer) is the most common and popular symbol during Christmas.

As the story goes during foggy Christmas evening Santa was worried whether he wouldn’t be able to deliver the gifts that night, but with the help of Rudolf and his glowing red nose by leading the sleigh Santa was able to deliver the gifts through storm and foggy weather.

For all of us Rudolph and his Red Nose animated film will be special to get into the spirit of Christmas. Do check out the 10 best Christmas movies for kids.
