Santa's Reindeer

How in the world can Santa's reindeer make the grueling trek all the way around the globe, working through the night with only short rooftop breaks?  They're females, that's how.  In most deer species only the males grow antlers, but that's not true for reindeers. And because most mature male reindeer shed their antlers in the winter, it's safe to assume the antlered reindeer working their magic on Christmas Eve are female.
