Oh deer, is that you, Rudolph?
Donning a pair of reindeer antlers and a red nose, even cars are getting into the festive spirit.

SINGAPORE - Red-nosed reindeers have been zipping around Singapore's roads these past few weeks, with drivers snapping up the unique car decorations produced by supermarket chain Cold Storage.

They comprise two reindeer antlers that can be clipped on windows, and a big red felt nose that can be tied on the bonnet.

Each set costs $9.90 and is available at all Cold Storage outlets.

A Cold Storage spokesman said: "We wanted to come up with a fun and unique way to spread the Christmas spirit." She added that sales have been "encouraging", but declined to give figures.

The decorations have been sold out in some outlets, but the supermarket chain does not plan to reorder them as it anticipates demand to drop after Christmas.

Stocks may be moved in from other outlets, depending on availability.

Mr Mark Tan, a 22-year-old full-time national serviceman, decided to surprise his parents by fixing the antlers and the nose on his family's black Toyota Wish while they were overseas.

He said: "I bought it to bring out the Christmas spirit in them."

When his parents returned on Saturday, they had just one thing to say: "So cute!"
