Tea Leaf Tales: I found out what Reindeer do before Christmas

With Christmas a week away, I expect Santa and his elves are working round the clock. But what about the reindeer? How do they prepare for their incredible world flight on Christmas Eve? I’d be carb-loading for sure!

I’ve wondered this for many holiday seasons, and this year I may have found a clue. Take a look at this common-looking deer I spotted recently while taking an early morning hike.

Only later, when I checked out this picture, did I notice those odd glimmers of sparkling light on the twigs near her body. Remaining drops of dew possibly reflected the angled sun rays, but I suspect the camera lens detected magic radiating off this special deer—a reindeer. She was grazing and taking a peaceful stroll through the woods. I think she was centering for her enormous responsibilities soon approaching.

Tea Leaf Tales is a series of original ten-sentence short stories by Marsha A. Moore, relating to photos/scenes that resonate with her.
