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]]. Simpler yet, AWizardDidIt.

** In another story where Santa himself appeared, one of his new elves asks him this question directly. Santa explains that he uses a [[AppliedPhlebotinum special time warp technique]] to do it.

* The 2017 Nickelodeon film "Tiny Christmas" indicates that Santa has an R & D department constantly working on ways to make it easier for Santa to deliver. Elfonso, head of the department creates size-changing goggles that shrink and enlarge presents for ease of transport.

* The novel ''Santa Steps Out'' has Santa use "Magic Time" to make time flow differently for him, allowing him more than enough time to deliver all the presents. And he's not the only one who uses it; when Mrs. Claus finds out Santa's been cheating on her, she uses it for a [[PowerPerversionPotential rather different purpose]]...namely, [[spoiler: having sex with every elf in the workshop in one weekend.]]

-->'''Santa:''' There's not just one Santa delivery team. How could there be? There are five hundred and twenty six million four hundred and three thousand and twelve children all expecting presents before tomorrow morning. So, hmm, that's twenty two million children per hour. It's impossible! Obviously, [[BaitAndSwitch I've got a second sledge.]]

* Deconstructed in the song "[[WeirdAlYankovic The Night Santa Went Crazy]]". Where delivering presents to everyone for some milk and cookies caused Santa to snap. Killing most of his reindeer, taking the elves hostage and blowing up the workshop before getting jailed.

* A few TV specials suggest Santa air drops some or many of his gifts while flying over houses, as one way of speeding up delivery of his packages to everyone (without having to physically go into every home). This is seen in a few of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' Christmas specials, plus the end credits of ''RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' 2014 Christmas special "Last Christmas" plays with this trope. At one point Santa claims that his sleigh is BiggerOnTheInside. [[spoiler: Averted in that Santa is only part of an elaborate series of nested dreams. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Or is he?]]]]

* Discussed in ''Franchise/ArchieComics''; In one story, Dilton posits that Santa is actually a hyper-advanced robot, but the others aren't impressed. With Chuck making sketches, the Riverdale gang makes their own guesses on what kind of person Santa could be. They determine that He'd have to be a younger, skinnier man in order to make his worldwide trip, have a long nose to smell out the cookies kids leave him, and be squinty-eyed in order to see in the dark. Much to everyone's surprise, the result comes out looking like Jughead!
