Ep 15: Christmas Carol Creatures (Mythological evolution)

Muttstuff Media / BewilderBeasts

Today on Bewilderbeasts, Melissa explores two popular Christmas Songs: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the 12 Days of Christmas.  Why are the reindeer named “Donder and Blitzen?”; when DID Santa decide to go with reindeer instead of a nice mustang? And, we’re going to figure out why on EARTH someone’s true love gave them all those dang birds.
