Does Santa Claus exist?

I take a pretty skeptical view on most things - especially when it comes to stuff like UFOs, Bigfoot, ghosts and the paranormal.

But not when it comes to Santa Clause.

Proof that Santa Claus exists:

1) It’s been mathematically proven that he could theoretically deliver all the presents. Yes, there are 2 billion children in the world but Santa doesn't have to worry about Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Buddhist children. Hence, his workload is reduced to just 378 million children. At an average of 3.5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes. Now he’d have to be fast, but he could visit them all – if he moved at the speed of sound (340.29 m/s).

2) Multiple sightings of Santa have been reported over the years.

3) If Santa didn’t exist, then who bought the presents and ate the mince pies left outside?

4) The mail service delivers the letters children write to Santa Claus. If Santa Claus didn’t exist, the letters would be returned and marked “return to sender”.

5) Reindeer can fly. “There are perhaps several hundred thousand species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and microorganisms, flying reindeer cannot be completely ruled out” – Nature Magazine

6) The screws used in the battery compartment of children’s toys are so small they can only be removed by super small screwdrivers which belong to dexterous elves with tiny hands.

7) His story was made into a documentary called "The Santa Clause” in 1994. The film stars Tim Allen who plays the role of a father who finds himself contractually bound to become Santa Claus when he unintentionally puts on the previous Santa's suit.

8) Santa Claus has a website!

LOL...tiny little screws. I think Santa Claus exists because how else would child molesters find their niche through impersonation.
