The giant reindeer perched on the shopping center roof, a phone clutched in his hoof, his red nose glowing against the smudgy December sky. Beneath him, a line of children waited for their turn to step into the red telephone booth marked "North Pole" and list their wishes. It was a new experience for the children - most of whom had never seen a phone booth before - and for many of their parents. But for the grandparents who crowded the Talbottown Shopping Center on a rainy Friday evening, it was a re-creation of some of their most cherished childhood memories.

After Tom Linsenmeyer committed suicide in 2001, his brothers and sister decided the best way to keep the student-athlete's memory alive would be a run for charity. Now in its 12th year, Tom's 5K Reindeer Run raises thousands of dollars for Sarah's House, an emergency shelter for women and families in Anne Arundel County. On Saturday morning, about 300 runners braved the cold in sweatpants and headbands to run the 3.1-mile lap around West Laurel, with proceeds expected to be between $5,000 and $10,000.

EACH CHRISTMAS, I try to identify the hot new item in outdoor home decorations, just to see how far behind the decorating curve I've fallen. This year, of course, the hot item is: illuminated reindeer. If you don't have an illuminated reindeer on your front lawn, brother, you're not with it at all. Last year, it was icicle lights; this year, it's reindeer that light up. Yes, sir, for around 100 bucks, you can get a 57-inch reindeer with 300 twinkling lights made in that hotbed of Christmas spirit and lore: China.

The essence of Christmas lives in its memories.If you grew up in the Towson area, the holiday wasn't complete without a trip to see Bow and Tinsel at Hutzler's. The department store closed a decade ago, but in a bit of yuletide luck, the two "talking" reindeer were discovered tucked away in a subbasement at the Hutzler's site."They were a bit ratty looking but it was Bow and Tinsel," said Jim Railey, 34, who found the pair. His company, Heritage Properties Inc., acquired the old Hutzler's store in 1996.

Ivalo, Finland -- Watch out for the reindeer," Finnish friends had warned when they heard I'd be driving through northern Lapland.Reindeer graze alongside the Arctic Road in summer. They like the salt left from snow removal efforts when winter nights are 21 hours long. Traffic doesn't bother them. Blaring horns won't stop them from walking in front of a speeding car.Knowing that is enough to keep a driver alert through mile after mile of two-lane asphalt through thick timber. Occasional glimpses of vast, mirror-like lakes relieve the tedium.

At age 18, Matt Musgrove has a precocious appreciation for the glory days of Baltimore's department stores. He was scarcely out of toddlerhood when Hutzler's in Towson closed its doors in 1990. But Musgrove grew up hearing captivating behind-the scenes accounts of the store's operations and intrigues from his grandmothers, both of whom had worked there. Musgrove, a sophomore at Villa Julie College, collects Hutzler's artifacts, including hangers, boxes and books issued on store anniversaries.

A daddy blogger wrote this month that the Halloween video "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" should be retired from viewing by this generation of kids because its title character is bullied and harassed throughout. Charlie Brown's friends call him a blockhead, and even the adults are mean to him - while the other kids get candy in their treat bags, Charlie Brown gets rocks. "My boys are 5 and 2. Young kids," said Buzz Bishop, the writer behind DadCamp on Babble.com . "They're at the age where words like "stupid" and "dumb" are as bad as a four letter word that rhymes with fire truck.

Santa didn't get run over by his reindeer, but he appears to have had a dust-up with an F-104 jet, in an elaborate Christmas display on Tom and Alice Blair's farm in St. Michaels. The tableau depicts the aftermath of a midair collision involving Santa's sleigh full of toys and a Cold War era "Starfighter" from the fictitious St. Michaels Air National Guard, piloted by "Captain Scrooge. " An elf retrieves a tricycle from the jet's tail wing as Santa notices that Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, is stuck in the fuselage and the pilot sits off to the side fixing a broken Radio Flyer wagon.

Chances are good they'll be trotting through town as part of the Running With the Reindeer 5K race. This is the inaugural 5K Run and 1K Fun Walk for the Jane M. Johnston Foundation, which raises money to help children fighting cancer. The foundation was started by Mrs. Johnston's husband, Alex.

WHITEFORD - Brian Adelhardt's seven reindeer are grounded this year. His Applewood Farm - 100 acres straddling the Mason-Dixon Line in Harford County and southern Pennsylvania - planned to provide animals for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's holiday pops concerts, for the Harford Mall, for the town of Oakland's Christmas parade. Instead, they are staying home - on the Pennsylvania part of Adelhardt's property because reindeer are not allowed to live in Maryland - and receiving school groups and other visitors.

It's an after-Christmas tradition for the Adelhardt family, who open their 100-acre Whiteford farm to the public to view the livestock that is forbidden in Maryland: the reindeer. Since Maryland law bans deer of any kind kept captive, Brian Adelhardt keeps his three reindeer north of the Mason-Dixon Line - seven acres of his farm are in Pennsylvania. "Reindeer is the biggest attraction here at Christmas time," he said. "On a normal weekend, when we walk along the parking lot, we get a lot of cars from Virginia.

Of course, the Angelistas should sign the jolly old elf if he promises to lay off the eggnog and tell management what's in the pipe. With the exception of their very cool mascot and brick warehouse, the Orioles have a charisma deficit that not even the silver-tongued Aubrey Huff can fill. Is there a more beloved figure in the country than Santa? Is there anyone who exudes that kind of goodwill? But Santa's more than that. He will take the ball every fifth day and won't make excuses. You need someone cool in the clutch, a clubhouse leader?
