* Of course Calvin of CalvinAndHobbes is childlike enough to believe in Santa and logical enough to think about these questions all the time. He wonders not only about how Santa can deliver the toys so fast, but on at least one occasion asks how Santa makes the toys, given the problems of paying for elf labor and the raw materials to make the toys. He also expresses discomfort, on quite a regular basis, with how he's in the position of being judged as "naughty or nice," and who is Santa to judge him that way? But he doesn't seem to have noticed that adults (and even many children) seem not to believe in Santa, so he's got no cognitive dissonance there.

But of course when Santa has flying reindeer and elves working with him, he might not be limited to natural means. The usual answer is that he can [[TimeStandsStill stop time]].

* The Christmas special of ''Little House On the Prarie'' had a neigbor recount how his big brother showed him a big stack of presents as proof that Santa wasn't real. His father told him that Santa actually delivers every family's shipment of goodies as soon as they were ready since it's impossible that he does it all in one go. His big brother got coal that year...

---> Results are hard to interpret. The tandem of SCP-2412-J and all the sub-SCPs apparently was capable of clearing very high distances within seconds (this is theorized to be a form of teleportation), and even co-existing in numerous locations at once. When asked to name the party responsible for these anomalies, SCP-2412 replied simply "Magic." and refused to elaborate.

It probably wouldn't surprise you if we said the story of SantaClaus wasn't written by someone considering [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale the ramifications and feasibility]] of one airborne human delivering presents to every house on planet 196.9 million square miles big in only 24 hours. Thus in fiction, a question often brought up to disprove the existence of SantaClaus is: How the hell could he deliver all those toys to so many children in one night? There are so many factors involved, it just wouldn't be possible by natural means.
