You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen — sure, they’re the most popular baby names of 2012. But they’re also the names of the flying reindeer made famous in that classic Christmas poem — and song. I love that song.
Actually, I love all Christmas music, and I’ve already started listening. It feels like ages since I heard about wassailing, figgy pudding, French hens and other things that don’t really exist.
