Magic Reindeer Food
Do you want Santa's reindeers on your lawn this year for Christmas Eve? Maybe even Rudolph? This recipe is guaranteed to work. (However, read the disclaimer below!)
1/2 cup dry oatmeal
1/3 cup sparkle glitter
1 heartful cup of Christmas hope (optional)
Mix ingredients together.
On Christmas Eve sprinkle the mixture all over your lawn. (Front or back lawn. Either will do.) The glitter will shine in the moonlight and lead Santa to your house before dawn. Looks so pretty in the snow. (Makes quite a mess when the snow begins to melt.)
Did you know that Santa's reindeers love oats, especially Rudolph? The smell of the oats will guide the reindeers directly to the rooftop of your house. Cool, huh?
Now for the Christmas hope in the magic reindeer food. If you didn't add it, you might want to reconsider because "hope" is what guarantees Santa will stop by your house this Christmas Eve. (Well, it wouldn't hurt to cross your fingers. You might need to cross your toes, too. How naughty were you?)
P.S. (please read disclaimer)
If by chance the magic food doesn't work, don't blame me. Take it up with Santa and his reindeers. It's much harder to fool Santa this year. He's been checking his list MORE than twice. That's because he keeps his list on the computer and he's concerned about hackers and glitches.
Reindeer: The Truth Behind the Legend
Each Christmas season we hear the stories of the eight tiny, flying reindeer that pull Santa's sleigh all over the world in one night.

Okay, there's the weight factor, but what else makes reindeer the right choice for the jolly North Pole toymaker on his annual voyage? Read on to learn some of the secrets of the world's most famous deer.
