My sister-in-law sent this to me. She was told it's the true story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I hope it's true because it's a very heart-warming story. Even if it's not, it's still a heart-warming fictional story worth reading. Enjoy!

<See Anne Marie's link for the real story. It's a also great story -and apparently hers is the true version of it.>

Aha! Thanks for sharing the real story behind this. :) It's almost as great as the fictional version I posted (and deleted).

It's especially heartwarming to know that even though they didn't HAVE to give him back his rights to the story (since it was created on company time for a company project), they did. I find that to be a wonderful example of the Christmas spirit!  :merryxmas
