A strange test flight of sorts took place late last night in snowy North Pole skies. Using a light sleigh with special cameras installed Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer practiced take-offs-and-landings in the harsh weather using different colored lights in his nose.
The test results showed that the traditional red color he has used for years will remain the preferred color going forward.
Santa was not involved in the test but was informed of its results.
When Rudolph returned with the reindeer in October he championed the idea of different colors for his famous brilliant nose as a means of improving sleigh performance and Santa’s overall speed.
Based on that idea a test was agreed upon to see if the idea had any merit.
The test conclusively showed that while varied lights brought a lot of different emotional responses from observers no other color was nearly as effective in the dark, or in adverse weather, or especially in fog than the red color Rudolph has always used.
