Red­nose regi­nald

Did you know that Ru­dolph the red­nose rein­deer was nearly called some­thing else? His cre­ator, Mont­gomery Ward, con­sid­ered call­ing Santa’s helper Rollo or Regi­nald but thank­fully re­alised Ru­dolph sounded catchier. The fa­mous rein­deer also nearly didn’t have a red nose be­cause at the time a red nose was seen as a sign of al­co­holism and it was thought he would look like a drunk­ard.
