Now this is a treat for the kids (and kids-at-heart).

Santa's Reindeer are taking a break from their Christmas preparations and coming down to the Fort Collins Bath Garden Center and Nursery to visit with children, take pictures, and relax (they deserve it)!

The posting for the event says that kids can visit the reindeer at the following times:

"Come visit Santa's backup reindeer at Bath Garden Center at 2000 E. Prospect Rd.
They will be here on three Sundays.
December 1, 11-4
December 8, 11-4
December 22, 11-4

These 5 month old reindeer will be available for your viewing pleasure. You may photograph them, and if they are up and near the fence, pet them."

Make sure you also whisper in their ears what you want for Christmas-- they might just carry the message on to the big man himself.
