Santa Physics ~ Xmas Eve Workload Infographic

Atlantic's Philip Bump calculates Santa's Christmas Eve Workload...
"There are just over 526,000,000 Christian kids under the age of 14 in the world who celebrate Christmas on December 25th. In other words, Santa has to deliver presents to almost 22 million kids/hour, every hour, on the night before Christmas. That's about 365,000 kids/minute; about 6,100/second. Totally doable."
Thanks to Freakonomics for spotlighting this!
