Much like the ugly duckling, Rudolph was always an outcast among Santa’s reindeer. Originally, the traditional Christmas lore included eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen and their origins date back to the 1800s. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was only introduced in 1949, but since then he’s widely considered a part of the gang.
Yet, story has it his red nose has always made him an outcast among his fellow reindeer, a feature that perhaps contributes to his wide-spread popularity among children. These sorority girl cleverly depicted the story of Santa’s reindeer in their hilarious Christmas card, with Rudolph as an outcast and all.
