Does Santa Know About This?

Guess who’s coming to Christmas Dinner? Muslim friends! Main course? Halal reindeer meat. “It’s the tastiest meat in the world,” says Harry Dyrstad of Norway’s Vilteksperten slaughterhouse. ‘It is going to be exciting to see how Muslims receive the taste of reindeer. This is a completely new halal product that many Muslims have not had tasted before,” adds Mehtab Afsar, General Secretary of the Islamic Council of Norway.

Christmas Dinner

December 25, 2011

Christmas Dinner
Ah, Christmas. “On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Vixen.” On the table, that is. What could be a more perfect Christmas dinner than venison? Pudding for “afters,” of course.

In North America, wild reindeer are called “caribou.” Whatever you call deer, moose, or elk, their meat is called “venison.” Reindeer are raised for meat in Finland, Russia, and other cold places. North American caribou meat producers include Canada’s Kivalliq Arctic Foods. Reindeer farms in Alaska and Michigan harvest meat, but most reindeer farms in the Lower 48 rent out their beasts for holiday displays and don’t send them to Santa’s abattoir.

Have a Merry, meaty Christmas.
