Just in time for Christmas Eve, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has given permission for Santa's reindeer to fly in Michigan.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development's Dr. James Averill, who is also the State Veterninarian, spent time with Santa's reindeer this week.

Rudolph was seen testing his nose and playing in other reindeer games as he prepares for the big night which is expected to go down in history.

All of the reindeer received thorough examinations and papers were checked before Averill gave official permission for the reindeer to fly in Michigan this Christmas Eve.
