Reindeer Spirit Animal

Well it’s that time of year again when we remember reindeer.  Even in southern climes where reindeer never go you’ll find them adorning roofs and buildings –   the inhabitants hoping for the arrival of winter gifts delivered by reindeer, Santa and sled.

Reindeer have been important to humans since our early days as hunter-gatherers. Found in cave paintings throughout Europe and Asia, reindeer are depicted as soaring through the air, perhaps acting as intermediaries between the human world and the spirit world.
