I followed this site last year and thought that you might be interested in watching with your children.  This is a site that you can watch the reindeer at the North Pole. Santa feeds the reindeer each day live at 11 a.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

SUGGESTION:  If you want to get rid of the viewer comments, there is a “hide” button on the right corner of the comment box. Might be a good idea as you can not anticipate what could be posted there… just to be safe.

Reindeer facts that I learned while visiting this site:

  • Reindeer are believed to be the only mammals that can see ultra-violet light.
  • Reindeer have specialized noses that warm incoming cold air before it enters the lungs–giving them a super sniffer!
  • Reindeer grow facial hair down to the lips. This protects the muzzle when they graze in snow. No chapped lips here!
  • No two antlers are the same. Every antler has its own shape and design just like a snowflake.
  • Reindeer live in large groups called herds. There are up to 1000 reindeer in a herd.

Enjoy!  Mrs. Walker
