    No joke. This is my absolute favorite part and always makes me a little misty. Hence Cathleen’s perfect gift.

    Seriously, how do they get so much emotion in that little figure’s face?

Santa’s Christmas Eve Workload, Calculated. The Atlantic.

There are just over 526,000,000 Christian kids under the age of 14 in the world who celebrate Christmas on December 25th. In other words, Santa has to deliver presents to almost 22 million kids an hour, every hour, on the night before Christmas. That’s about 365,000 kids a minute; about 6,100 a second. Totally doable.
Especially when you consider the uneven distribution of kids in the world. Santa needs to hit 22 million kids every hour. If Santa starts at the International Date Line and heads west, the first four time zones he passes barely contain that many kids waiting for presents. He’s already got three hours in the bank. Until, you know, he gets to Europe, which kind of breaks his schedule.
Here’s what Santa’s night looks like. Read it from right to left; i.e., east to west.

No wonder he never drinks the milk or eats the cookies I leave out for him, pausing for even a minute would completely set him back. In other words, myth busted. Santa does exist.
