Does Santa Need Plastic Surgery?

Does Santa need plastic surgery after a trip around the world? Approximately 108 million families worldwide celebrate Christmas every year. If Santa ate on average 1.5 cookies per household and a cookie has on average 150 calories, Santa is looking to take-in throughout his trip 24,300,000,000, or over 24 billion calories. If a pound of fat can be generated by 3,500 calories (kilocalories to me more precise), then Santa is looking to put on over 6,900 pounds overnight! So how does Santa do it? For one, he probably doesn’t eat the estimated 162,000,000 cookies (one hundred and sixty two million). In reality, he probably doesn’t eat any. High sugar foods such as cookies inevitably lead to a sugar crash, and the last thing Santa needs 25,000 miles in the sky is mental fatigue. So who eats all the cookies? Well, kids, it’s either your parents sneaking downstairs for a bedtime snack, an oversized mouse, or a monster. So stay in bed, kids!
