Christmas: This week we have our classic assortment of trees, ornaments, Mangers, santa’s, snowmen and other decor...but did you know...we have the most famous reindeer of all!! RUDOLPH!!! Did you know...That Montgomery Wards (the department store from way back when) is credited for the introduction of Rudolph? Rudolph first appeared in a 1939 booklet written by Robert L. May, and was published by Montgomery Ward. (I think that we can then credit Robert L. May and Montgomery Ward for highlighting bullying through the whimsical fun made at Rudolph’s expense-don’t even get me started on the misfit toys!!) Back to Rudolph-we have ornaments, characters from the beloved TV show, a store display piece, and an adorable (I do mean ADORBS) full on epic diorama of the characters….so cute!
