Santa has a pretty tough job. Assuming he's traveling from east to west, he has just 33 short hours to visit millions of homes on Christmas Eve. How does he do all that? Well, mostly with the help of fuel; and we're not just talking about regular unleaded for the sleigh. St. Nick himself needs quite a bit of caloric fuel on such a long work day. Thankfully, those plates of cookies you leave for him really help.
