Most of us are familiar with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, a beloved figure of childhood and Christmas lore. But when did Rudolph become a part of our holiday tradition? The names of Santa's team of eight flying reindeer were established in the poem A Visit From St. Nicholas, published in 1823, but it was in 1939 that the character of Rudolph, "the most famous reindeer of all", was first introduced.
