Dasher, Cupid Blitzen and ... Mr. Moose?

Merry Xcess

December 03, 2003|By Susan Reimer

After scouring catalogs and online purveyors of fine goods, our astute trend spotters have come to two conclusions: This holiday season, scarlet is the new black and, perhaps more shockingly, the moose is the new reindeer.

Don't be confused by the fact that the two animals both have antlers. Moose are easily distinguished by their longer snouts and their general lack of sleekness. Much the same way as you would tell the difference between your Great-aunt Martha and a Victoria's Secret model.

But moose are everywhere. In jewelry and jackets. Stuffed toys and Christmas ornaments. Chimes and sweaters. Artwork and pajamas.

Can flying squirrels be far behind?
