LIVERPOOL - Soon, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph will be flying through the night sky pulling Santa’s sleigh.
The Advance decided to head to Dr. John C. Wickwire Academy in Liverpool to speak with the Christmas experts in Tracey Duffney’s Grade Primary classroom. The 19 students in that class may just have the answers as to why Rudolph’s nose is red.
A few students are pretty certain Rudolph’s nose is red because he’s a reindeer, while Oliver MacVicar says Rudolph’s nose is red because he’s cold. But Emma Vaughn is pretty sure Rudolph dipped his nose in paint and that’s why it’s red.
