LOOK: The Internet Has a Shocking New Theory About Santa's Reindeer

Every holiday season, we hear the story of Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer.  As the story goes, Rudolph leads his eight reindeer buddies (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen) that help Santa travel to deliver toys each Christmas.

But what if we had the story wrong all these years? I never really thought about it before, but I guess I just assumed the group of reindeer was a mix of boys and girls.  You probably did too, right? So imagine my surprise when this tweet went viral this week. It suggests that the reindeer were all girls:

This makes sense. I've never met a woman named Rudolph.  Actually, come to think of it: I've never met a guy named Rudolph either.

Still, you get my point.
