But reindeers Holly, Velvet, Peppermint and Belle are spending the holidays at the San Francisco Zoo.
The animals arrived at the zoo over the weekend and they'll stay through New Year's Day.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the animals were trucked in from the Reindeer Ranch in Redmond, Oregon.
They eat about 10 pounds of hay and five pounds of grain every day.
But zoo keepers, not elves will feed them.
