Description

Tiny Christmas Reindeer Necklace. In folklore, Santa is said to use reindeer to pull his sleigh from his home in the North Pole to every child’s house and back on Christmas Eve night, delivering toys to the world’s children. Not only can Santa’s reindeer make this remarkable trek in a single night, but they also do so by flying. Magic (or science we don’t understand) endows them with this ability. Reindeer are semi-domesticated and are native to Northern Europe and Siberia, and people still herd reindeer to this day.

Our reindeer charm necklaces are:

  • Reindeer charm is 1 inch by 0.5 inches (2 cm x 1.5 cm)
  • 18 inch (45 cm) silvertone chain
  • 2 inch (5 cm) extender chain
  • Adjustable to 20 inches (51 cm)
  • Secured with a lobster claw clasp

Handmade necklace.

While it is considered common knowledge that reindeer have been domesticated since the 11th century, new evidence shows that they’ve actually been domesticated for well over 2,000 years. Reindeer have a history of being used both as work animals and as farm animals, being raised for their milk, meat, and hides. In fact, reindeer still contribute to the pastoral economy today, often being sold on the open market to buy snowmobiles, food, cell phones, and computers.

Santa’s reindeer were first discussed in 1821 when New York printer William Gilley published an unnamed author’s 16-page booklet named A New Year’s Present to the Little Ones from Five to Twelve, Part III:

With much delight, old Santeclaus
This frosty night, his reindeer are driving.
Over chimneytops and snow tracks,
To bring you his yearly gifts.

The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, popularly called ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, was released shortly afterward in 1823 in the Troy Sentinel. This poem marks both the first time Santa’s reindeer are mentioned by name and the first time that it is explicitly stated that Santa’s sleigh is pulled by eight flying reindeer.

The story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer guiding Santa’s sleigh was released in 1939, when Robert L. May wrote the story of “the most famous reindeer of all” for his employer, the department store Montgomery Ward, as a Christmas coloring book. The coloring books were given to children as holiday gifts to entice their parents to visit and shop at the store. (Personal note, my mother had one of these books and read it to us at Christmas.)
