Tonight—on Christmas Eve—we’re finishing our series called Netflixmas talking about Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
The story of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer was written in 1939 by Bob May, a writer for Montgomery Ward department stores. Montgomery Ward had bought and distributed coloring books every Christmas for children, and decided to write an original story. Montgomery Ward distributed 2.4 million copies of the Rudolph coloring book in 1939, with a total of 6 million copies given out by December of 1946, even though wartime paper shortages restricted printing.
