How Santa Manages Christmas Eve


How could one overweight man and a pack of tiny reindeer possibly deliver a toy to every child on Earth in just one night?  The answer is simple.  Santa doesn’t do it alone.  He relies on a team of highly skilled (but very short) experts and his centuries of experience.  Still not sure if the big guy is real?  Here are a few answers to the Santa-doubters’ most frequent questions:


In Just One Night?

Santa’s route takes him against Earth’s rotation.  Not only does the sleigh gain speed as the Earth turns at 330 mph, he also saves time by beginning his toy deliveries just as darkness falls and children start to fall asleep.



The animals are ideal for flying.  Their thick fur keeps them warm at high altitudes.  Running speed:  Reindeer = 15 mph, Cheetah = 60 mph.


Airborne ‘re-gifting’

As his supply of presents runs low, Santa meets up with a modified cargo jet that sends him more gifts through a long tube.



Like the special parts of some animals, Rudolph’s nose glows,when a few special chemicals ( Luciferin and Adenosine triphosphate) mix with oxygen.  Scientists call this ‘bioluminescence’.


Clocking Santa Delivering Around the World

Thanks to different time zones and the Earth’s rotation, Santa has about 31 hours of Christmas to deliver gifts to more than one billion children (persons under 18) in one night.  With an average of 3.5 children per household, that comes to more than 300 million stops.


Santa starts delivering gifts tonight at 11 p.m. in California.  By then it is already 7 a.m. in London on Christmas morning…. and 4 p.m. in Tokyo on Christmas afternoon.

Any Questions??  Good!  Now get ready for the ‘Fat Man’ and by the way, it’s too late to start being good now!!!!!
