Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer & Christmas Tree Decorations

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer has been a favourite character since his creation by Robert L. May in 1939. He was first commissioned, drawn and appeared in a colouring book. Did you know that Robert May considered naming the reindeer "Rollo" and "Reginald" before deciding upon using the name "Rudolph"?

Here are some of my Rudolph influenced Christmas Tree Decorations...

Rudolph has been immortalised on the big screen, his first appearance was in 1944 and there have been many short films and movies made since.

The well known Rudolph song was first published in 1949 and sung by Gene Autry, it became the Christmas Number 1 in that year and has been sung by countless children since....
