Reindeer not only comes to the magic story with Santa Claus but also exists in reality as the kind of special species.

Reindeer not only comes to the magic story with Santa Claus but also exists in reality as the kind of special species. Reindeer is an icon of Finnish Lapland because of the number of reindeer in this province which roughly equals to the number of local residents. Their unique cold-resistance ability enables reindeer to survive in such extreme environment.
Those little Santa Helpers are also very good friends of Lappish people, especially Sami people. The reindeer husbandry culture had a profound influence on all Sami people’s lives. All Sami people got to know reindeer husbandry either because of having their own ones or through working as hired men.
