… that today, besides being Christmas in many countries (Merry Christmas!), is the birthday of Rudolph? Robert May created Rudolph in 1939 as an assignment for Montgomery Ward. The retailer had been buying and giving away coloring books for Christmas every year and decided that creating their own book would save money. May considered naming the reindeer “Rollo” and “Reginald” before deciding upon using the name “Rudolph.”
