Based on Your Personality, Which of Santa’s Reindeer Are You?
We've heard the names of Santa's reindeer for our entire lives, and yet we know nothing about them. What's their social circle like?
Which reindeer are besties, and which can't stand each other? Which ones are secretly edgy? Which one should go easy on the 'nog? We did some digging so you can find out which reindeer you are at heart.
Zodiac sign: Scorpio
Best qualities: The fastest member of the herd, always comes through in the end
Toxic trait: Parties too much
You're Dasher if... You're an extrovert to the extreme and live for the nightlife. You're always the loudest in the room, the first to arrive at the party and the last to leave. Dasher's the only one of Santa's reindeer who would rather hit the club on Christmas morning instead of heading back to the North Pole. He's lucky he's young because he pregames for the big voyage with an entire trough of eggnog. He gives off the energy of a frat boy, but the rest of the herd begrudgingly admits they like having him around. He's the fastest, and his bottomless energy and enthusiasm keep everyone going when they hit an icy headwind.
Zodiac sign: Libra
Best qualities: Dances everywhere
Toxic trait: Is a little too proud of her split jump
You're Dancer if... You express yourself through movement and have natural poise and grace. Dasher likes to hit the dance floor, but she actually prefers to hit the stage. She's starred in every North Pole production of "The Nutcracker" so far. That's saying something since she's the only member of the ballet company with four legs. Dancer has a Type A personality and can be annoyingly perfectionistic, but everyone appreciates her attention to detail.
Zodiac sign: Sagittarius
Best qualities: Graceful, quick and perceptive
Toxic trait: Afraid of anything that moves
You're Prancer if... You have an annoying sister who everyone compares you to, even though you're just as awesome in your own way. Dancer, Prancer's sister, was always better at ballet, which made Prancer a little self-conscious. But since she spent so much time comparing herself to others, she developed a knack for noticing details that others miss. She can read people like a map, and if she notices a friend is feeling down, she's the first to offer a helping hand. She's still a little shy and fearful, but once you get to know her, she's the best friend a reindeer could have.
Zodiac sign: Gemini
Best qualities: Dropdead gorgeous, knits handmade sweaters
Toxic trait: Tries to flirt with Santa
You're Vixen if... Your personality and natural charm tend to get you into trouble. Vixen is adorable, and she knows it. She has the silkiest fur and the most delicate antlers, and the elves always give her the most attention. She's playful and likes to tease, so naturally, that's often misconstrued as flirting. In reality, she's quite content with remaining single and spends her free evenings practicing yoga and enjoying her self-care routine in her stall back at the North Pole stable.
Zodiac sign: Cancer
Best qualities: Wise, experienced and strong
Toxic trait: Gets distracted by stargazing mid-flight
You're Comet if... You know a thing or two because you've seen a thing or two. Comet is one of the older members of the herd, and his years of experience have kept the team out of trouble more than once. Dasher almost followed faulty GPS straight into a hurricane, but Comet was able to keep Santa on course the old-fashioned way. He doesn't get the charm of emojis and still doesn't have a TikTok account. He's stubborn and set in his ways, but his stable energy keeps everyone grounded.
Zodiac sign: Aquarius
Best qualities: Has big dreams and usually makes them come true
Toxic trait: Tries to play matchmaker
You're Cupid if... You're a hopeless romantic with a big vision. Cupid is an idea guy. Every plan he makes is huge, and sometimes, he bites off more than he can chew. He's also fallen in love with Vixen, Dasher and Prancer, but none of them are interested. His over-the-top dreams come in handy when the herd gets into a jam that requires some out-of-the-box thinking. For example, when bad weather slowed down toy delivery one year, Cupid "borrowed" a Good Year blimp so Santa could finish delivering the last few dozen toys without getting caught. Brilliant, and the pilot didn't even notice it was missing.
Zodiac sign: Taurus
Best qualities: Gets s*** done
Toxic trait: Act's like everyone's mom
You're Donner if... You've been the mom friend since you were 12. Donner takes care of everyone. Even though reindeer have fur, she still makes the group apply SPF 50 daily. Do you know how much UV radiation there is with all that snow?! So much. She also ensures everyone brushes their teeth after the elves sneak some extra Christmas cookies into the stable. She can be bossy and overbearing, but sometimes Dasher and Cupid need someone to rein them in. They act annoyed, but they also trust her to get them out of hot water when they get into trouble. Donner always comes through. The "I told you so" is implied.
Zodiac sign: Virgo
Best qualities: Funny, encouraging, keeps up morale
Toxic trait: Won't stop making Donner Party jokes
You're Blitzen if... You were always the class clown in school. Blitzen is best friends with Dasher, and the two always pull pranks. After reading about the Donner Party in school, Blitzen took the joking one step too far and started making cracks at poor Donner's expense. He even added her name to the menu at the North Pole's Thanksgiving dinner. She was none too pleased, but she forgave him after he kept the team's Christmas spirits up when they were lost in a freak blizzard. He might take the jokes too far, but he's really a big-hearted softie.
Zodiac sign: Aries
Best qualities: The nose thing is pretty cool
Toxic trait: Still hasn't gotten over the childhood bullying
You're Rudolph if... You think you're the main character, and you actually are. Rudolph had a major glow up in high school, and the other reindeer are slightly bitter about it. Rudolph is gracious, though. He doesn't rub it in that he has the best antlers and is the only one with a built-in face flashlight, but he definitely has some unprocessed trauma that should be worked out in therapy. It's OK, Rudolph. We all do.
