How do the reindeer fly?

Long ago, Santa Claus and the elves discovered the special formula of Magical Reindeer Dust which makes them fly. This dust is sprinkled on each of the reindeer shortly before they leave on Christmas Eve. It gives them enough magic to fly right around the world. They can fly very fast: at about the speed of a Christmas
light.
The Reindeer driven by Santa Claus are the only known flying Reindeer in existence. Besides the Magic Dust, Santa's reindeer are fed a "special" diet throughout the year which helps give them the power of flight.


How does Santa's sleigh make it around the world in one day?

With the reindeer traveling at the speed of Christmas Light, Santa can come and go in the "twinkling of an eye." He doesn't need to fill his sleigh with toys for
every single boy and girl in the world all at once; it's really easy for him to make several trips back to his Toyshop to pick up as many loads as necessary.
The Elves have his toy sacks sorted and ready to pack onto the sleigh when it arrives back, so the exchange happens within seconds to get Santa back on
his way.
Santa also has "secret" hiding places located at strategic places around the world, so he can instantly pick up a new load of toys easily and quickly.


What kind of snack does Santa like left out for him?

Santa loves cookies, of course, but he is always happy to try anything you think he might like -- pick your favorite kind of cookie or snack and Santa and the reindeer will be happy! The reindeer love carrots and lettuce best, of course!
