I’m sure almost everyone knows the story of Rudolph, however did anyone ever wonder why Rudolph’s nose is red?  That is a question that I find myself pondering, every time I hear the song. I think that people’s noses tend to get red and bulbous when they drink way too much.  Rudolph was born with a red, bulbous nose. Maybe his mother and father were sizable drinkers and they just passed that red nose on to Rudolph. Maybe Rudolph was born outside in the middle of snowstorm.  When they covered him up to keep him warm, his nose was sticking out and it got red from the cold. I’m not sure it would glow unless he made a Christmas wish for a hot nose. Then he would have his own personal heater.  Every time his nose glows, it means his gas furnace has reached its capacity and it is time to let some of that heat out. The heat comes from the glowing red nose. Does his nose go back to being brown then? I sometimes guess too  much and my hubby says it is a fault of mine. I seem to want to tear everything apart and find out why. It has been something I have done since I was a kid. I want to tear all of the stories apart. I also tore things apart when I was a kid.  I tore the aged space gas furnace apart to see how it worked. The space gas furnace didn’t job when I ripped it apart. The space gas furnace didn’t job when I put it back together. I assume it’s safer to tear stories apart.
