    OK so a big part of the Christmas narrative is Santa Claus, right? And how he brings presents to every household and whatnot?

    Here's the thing, though: People have done the math, and there's no way Santa could visit every home without bending the very laws of nature.

    Somehow, it all makes Christmas even more magical.
