FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Santa's reindeer stopped at Jefferson Pointe Saturday to bring the magic of Christmas to Fort Wayne families. 

Joni Cripe has owned Animal Grams for the last 15 years.

The reindeer shed their antlers every year and grow them back. 

They're also made for cold climates with thick coats and the ability to cool their breath in their mouth so it's not visible to predators.

They're native to far northern areas such as Alaska, Canada, and of course, the North Pole. 

"It's just a lot of fun. It's become a tradition for so many people. We're glad to be part of it," Cripe said. 

Santa's reindeer have to head back to the North Pole for Christmas, but are expected to return.
