The answers to these and many other questions can be found in my brand new book – Secret Science of Santa Claus.

Santa has developed these technologies with the elf-scientists at his Arctic workshops.

You’ll also read about the possible future that awaits Santa Claus as his Christmas Eve gift-bringing continues onwards into the 21st century.
