You Know Dasher and Dancer...

Did you also know that male reindeer lose their antlers in early winter [late November to early December]? And that female reindeer don't lose their antlers until the spring? Hmmmm...ever met a gal named Rudolph?!

When Ben lived in London, he lived right next to Richmond Park [the former hunting grounds of King Charles I]. The park is home to some 650 free roaming deer. If you go there, you can see the markings on the trees from where the stags rub their antlers on them before they fall off.

What is it about antlers that are so beautiful?
