Christmas fun fact to make you think...
There are 2,106 million children under age 18 in the world. If there are on average 2.5 children per household, Santa would have to make 842 million stops on Christmas Eve, traveling 221 million miles. To reach all 842 million stops, Santa would need to travel between houses in 2/10,000 second, which means he would need to accelerate 12.19 million miles (20.5 billion meters) per second on each stop. 2,340,000 mph - The speed at which Santa's sleigh would need to travel if he were to reach every home in the world on Christmas Eve! Whew! Good luck tonight Santa (he is obviously taking time to read my blog right now too)! Now, we know why you needs all those cookies and milk! :)
