Editing for Grammarphobes: Holiday Edition

Couldn't head into this week without a friendly language reminder about something that turns me from holly jolly to the nastiest of grammar grinches.

Please do not refer to the animals that pull Santa's sleigh as "reindeers." There is no such word. Reindeer is both the singular and plural form of the word.

That is all.

You are free to begin your holiday celebrations.

P.S. Attention Kindle owners! Flash Fiction Fridays contributor Eileen Granfor's Sydney's Story, a prequel to Dicken's classic A Tale of Two Cities, is free today and tomorrow.

You have opened Pandora's box of plurals. LOL! Mice-meese, moose-meese, I'm so confused!!!
Merry Christmas Karen!
Big Hugs,
