Do you know why Santa takes a reindeer to pull a car
Santa lives in the North Pole. More precisely, his house is located in the Arctic Circle, the town of Rovaniemi in Lapland, Finland. Like other northern European cultures, the Finns have long used reindeer as a means of survival.
Reindeer is both a food, a means of transportation, and a shelter. More often, reindeer pits, fences and reindeer signage are found in some areas, etc.
Living in the harsh Arctic, reindeer have been able to adapt to the ice for centuries, helping them survive in the harsh Northern climate. For example, their noses have a special air-conditioning mechanism that heats the air before breathing, so air enters the lungs without getting cold. In addition, the reindeer’s fur has the ability to insulate, keep warm as they cross the glaciers and lakes during transportation. That’s why Santa uses a reindeer to pull the cart.
Why are there 9 reindeer and they know how to fly
Initially Santa’s flying carriage consisted of 8 reindeer, arranged in 2 rows. On a Christmas night, Santa had difficulty giving presents to the children because of the frosty sky. Fortunately, he discovered Rudolph – a reindeer with a glowing red nose. So Santa gave Rudolph the lead of his rickshaw. It was thanks to the reindeer’s glowing red nose that helped him accomplish his Christmas night mission. Since then there are 9 reindeer. According to legend they flew because Santa Claus miraculously fed cornmeal and oatmeal.
