The popularity of Santa and his reindeer is largely due to Clement C. Moore, who put the two together in his wildly successful poem. "A Visit from St. Nicholas."
But Moore was not the first to pair Santa with hoofed friends. Before Moore published his poem, there had been a number of less successful books that portrayed Santa thing around in a sleigh pulled by one reindeer.
This concept had long been popular in Russia, where Father Frost arrived in the villages in a reindeer-drawn sleigh.
The Norse god Wodin was said to ride his horse Sleipner through the air to make sure people were behaving; in Today, Rudolph, "the red-nosed reindeer", is by far the most popular of Santa's nine he is also the youngest (or at any rate the most recent arrival).
The first eight reindeer were introduced by Moore in 1523: Rudolph did not come along until 1939, in a story by Robert L. May. Rudolph's notoriety owes much to the popularity of the Gene Autry song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," released in 1949 and a holiday classic to this day.
