Well, I was just curious to what the names of them were so I browsed Wikipedia and to much surprise, I found a lot of interesting and colliding information on there. To start off, the original reindeer are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder, and Blixem. Usually they're called Donner and Blitzen, but apparently that's not the original names. Another thing I found interesting is that Blitzen was originally a girl, not a boy, and that Rudolph is supposed to be the son of Donner and Blitzen...so how is that scientifically possible if they're both female? Last and not least, Robbie the reindeer (I don't know if any of you have seen that movie) falls in love with Donner, and since Rudolph is his dad, doesn't that make Donner his grandma? Anybody else notice these things or have other thoughts on this?

We usually referred to them as Donder/Donnor and Blitzen, like you said. But that IS very interesting.

lol, I've never heard of lesbo-reindeer. But in the movie~w, Blitzen was his dad, soooooo, yeah. I don't know.

Robbie the Reindeer is an awesome movie, that's all I have to say. And who knows, maybe all that could have happened was that they renamed the reindeer.~w

But we can't take these seriously. It's all a myth, after all.

Interesting, yet confusing at the same time.

Yeah it can do that :p

Once two kids in my school edited a list of roman goddesses to our teachers or something, and Wikipedia got really pissed :p They called our school and banned us from Wikipedia for a week. Lol.
