It’s Christmas time, and holiday spirits couldn’t be higher, or could they?
There is a cute white reindeer calf that will make your spirits even brighter. In the most exciting fashion, the rare spectacle unfolded in the most delightful ways, creating a beautiful Christmas story.
The reindeer calf came out of the woods in Northern Norway. Those who laid their eyes on it had nothing but happy and hopeful things to say about it, and what it means for the long-awaited holiday that is just starting.
The beautiful pose the reindeer calf made on the snow turned it into a sensation, making for newsworthy photos that are now circulating all over the web.
However, the most interesting thing about the little reindeer is its special look that makes it seem like a truly magical Christmas creature. White reindeer are truly rare, and there are several myths surrounding their existence and the sighting of them.
Mads Nordsveen, a Norwegian photographer, coincidentally had the rare chance of witnessing the white reindeer calf.
Reindeer are not usually white, and when they are, it is generally due to a genetic mutation that gives them their unique and magical appearance. They are not albino either, as their eyes and antlers are pigmented.
Although the reindeer calf was spotted at this opportune time, it was most likely born back in May, when reindeer calves are often born. So, it is just a few months old.
The reindeer took on its magical role brilliantly. When it saw the photographer, it went closer, remaining calm all along; almost as if aware of the beloved and cherished role it had in an amazing Christmas holiday narrative.
It was like the calf wanted the world to have a couple of brilliant and majestic pictures of it before going about its business.
The reindeer had no issues bringing feelings of joy and goodwill to the mesmerized observers, and then later to those who saw the rare photos.
The calf’s cuteness brightened the faces of many, thanks to its happy and curious look. Like any normal calf, he did not stay long when his mother, who was brown, emerged from the woods. It went trotting along to be closer to its mother, leaving the curious and fascinated observers happy with the magical discovery.
People are already making predictions about what it means for them and the Christmas season. Some people believe that this is a sign it will be a white Christmas. That would be beautiful, wouldn’t it?
The Sami believe that seeing a white reindeer is a sign that good luck is coming your way. This is especially true if you happen to see the white reindeer, the sun and moon at once.
