Merry Christmas to everybody in Claycord!

We hope you have a wonderful and relaxing day!

Who remembers “ReinBear”? (pictured above).

For those of you who are new here, “ReinBear” made his debut on Claycord about four-years ago. “ReinBear” is the three-legged half-reindeer-half-bear, who only has one antler, and is standing in a puddle of a green unknown substance in front of a Christmas tree with no trunk.

He was purchased at the Dollar Tree, and currently hangs on our mantle!

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Thank you Mayor! I just said good night to my neighbors. We had such fun looking at the lights of Claycord. We got to speak with Mr Christmas just before he turned in for the night. He sold out of his DVDs but you can still purchase at He told us that he needed to raise enough money to cover the royalty costs. He used a Christmas song that was copy write protected. Now he has to pony up a chunk of change. Yikes!

Anyway…now that I see ReinBear, I finally truly feel the Christmas spirit. That little guy just makes me feel good.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, and a very Merry Christmas to all of my Claycord family 🙂 December 25, 2012 at 12:27 AM

Merry Christmas, MadMom! Hope you have a wonderful day wtih your family.

I am glad to see this story will never die. Here I sit in Japan for the holidays and low and behold I get to read the reinbear story yet again. This is starting to be like that movie “The Christmas story”

I am Wishing all in Claycord Land a very Merry Christmas from Japan.

Merry Christmas Mayor to you and your family. Rainbear has become a Christmas tradition.

Schmee December 25, 2012 at 8:30 AM

You also didn’t mention why an animal covered in fur would wear a scarf lol.

Merry Xmas. December 25, 2012 at 8:33 AM

Merry Christmas, everybody!! It’s funny that everybody loves ReinBear as much as we do! 🙂

Haha, Schmee, I didn’t think about that, I’ll add it to the list.

It’s creepy and it’s freaking me out. Who does that?

Merry Christmas Mr. Mayor and all fellow Claycordians

lexicon December 25, 2012 at 9:32 AM

Merry Christmas all! Thanks Mr. Mayor for providing such a fun and useful site.

DanD December 25, 2012 at 9:53 AM

Merry Christmas Mr. Mayor to you and your family and all Claycordians!
I’m curious do you think this was a manufacturing mistake, and does anybody else have one of these, if so perhaps they would consider auctioning it off with the proceeds going to charity, I would definitely be the first to bid!
F.Y. I. I do not watch TV and is always my first resource for local news and entertainment. Thanks for all that you do! December 25, 2012 at 10:08 AM

Thanks, DanD. Yes, this was definitely a manfacturing mistake. All the others looked normal, but this one had so many flaws.

No, I never thought about auctioning off ReinBear, although he has become a very special part of our Christmas tradition.

Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate your support.

Merry Christmas!

Mayor December 25, 2012 at 10:09 AM

Merry Christmas, everybody! Thanks for all the nice words! Hope you all have a wonderful day.


Concord1963 December 25, 2012 at 10:20 AM

Please don’ t auction off reinbear! Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Cowellian December 25, 2012 at 10:49 AM

ReinBear is a great tradition. Your kids will tell their kids about it.

Travis Bickle December 25, 2012 at 10:56 AM

“Merry Christmas everybody!” he writes with bleary eyes, as he prepares to do the bidding of two young boys who want their Santa gifts assembled NOW.

Dorothy December 25, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Merry Christmas to all. Love to ReinBear.

Karen December 25, 2012 at 11:31 AM
