On the 8th Post of Christmas I'm going to share with thee...
Some fun holiday trivia from Me (well, actually my Mom)


Hey Pups, on this 8th day I thought I'd share some of the useless I mean fun and interesting trivia my Mom found on one of her geeky favorite blogs, Mental Floss.

1) Did you know, Rudolph turned 70 years old this year! I mean seriously, he's 70 and is still guiding Santa Paws sleigh every year. Way to go Rudolph!!!

2) I didn't realize it, but it's not just about Santa Paws...there are other holiday characters out there from around the world. And some of them look mighty scawie that's for sure. Check out that Krampus guy...I'm sure going to be good from now on!!!

3) The first (and only) holiday song to reach #1 on the billboard charts was "The Chipmunk Song"! Really, me and my friends can sure sing better than those silly little chipmunks! Here are a few other holiday 'firsts'.

4) Did you ever wonder where candy canes came from? And I always thought they came from Safeway!!!

5) And last but not least...here's a quiz about the 12 Days of Christmas...not to be confused by my annual 12 posts which of course change every year to keep it interesting - hee hee hee!!!

I hope you enjoyed our little trip down trivia lane.

Oh My if I had to worry about Krampus, I think I'd pee on myself.

I took the quiz but forgot all about the 12 drummers drumming! DUH!

My favorite song is Dominick the Donkey!

We thought Candy Canes came from Santa Paws and his elves!
We wish you the merriest of Christmases and a most happy new year!!
