This month at Bothell, Washington’s famed Country Village shopping center, two reindeer are greeting visitors before they suit up for their Christmas Eve flight with Santa.

Reindeer 12-15 1

At first I thought Dasher (or Dancer?) was using the friendly neighborhood horse statue to itch her head, but reindeer evidently rub against available objects to remove velvet from their antlers, leave scents, etc.

From Slooh.com, Santascope Provides Live Coverage Of Santa Over The Full Moon On Christmas Eve:

Children around the world can capture some unique Christmas magic in a gift from Slooh.

…Slooh has a special Christmas treat for our viewers. The Full Moon will be high in the sky during Santa’s trip, and Slooh astronomers say they might be able to catch a glimpse of jolly Saint Nick and his sleigh, from our SantaScope, as they pass in front of the Full Moon.

This is the first time the Full Moon has fallen on Christmas since 1977, and Slooh will enable you to capture Santa and his flying reindeer in our StarShare camera, which will be made available to the public for free for this day. Kids will be given the chance to snap their own photo of Santa Claus flying across the Full Moon, before visions of sugar plums dance in their heads!

We’ll be capping off the night with a special appearance by the Christmas Comet at Midnight EDT. Many believe the biblical Star of Bethlehem may have actually been a comet streaking through the night sky, guiding the Wise Men on their journey to greet the baby Jesus.
