Where did Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer come from?

Published

on

Rudolph first appeared in 1939 in a booklet written by Robert L. May that was published by Montgomery Ward, a department store. He is usually depicted as a young calf who barely has antlers and a glowing red nose. He is Santa’s ninth reindeer who is mocked and excluded by his peer for his difference in appearance. As the song goes they wouldn’t let him play in any reindeer games but then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa approached him and asked if he would guide their sleigh. Proving himself, Rudolph is treated as a hero and becomes everyone’s favorite reindeer.

Rulopdlph and his story is owned by The Rudolph Company, LP and has been adapted in numerous forms including songs, a television special, and feature films. Character Arts, LLC manages the licensing for the Rudolph Company, LP. 2014 marked the 75th anniversary of the character and the 50th anniversary of the television special. It’s hard to believe that Rudolph hasn’t always been around, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without him.

An Australian woman conceived two baby girls 10 days apart. Yes, you read that right, she had sex one time and got pregnant and then got pregnant again 10 days later.

10-days-apart

Kate and Peter Hill have two beautiful baby girls that resulted from polycystic ovarian syndrome which is a hormonal condition that left her unable to ovulate back in 2006. When she wanted to get pregnant earlier this year, doctors prescribed hormone injections to help her conceive.

Conceiving a second child while already pregnant,  aka superfetation, is so rare that there are reportedly only 10 or 11 known cases in the world. Kate was quoted as saying “What makes this case even more rare is that my husband and I only had intercourse one time— his sperm stayed alive for 10 days to fertilize the second egg released.”
