Old Santa Claus

Creation of Christ Mass : In A.D. 350, Pope Julius I, bishop of Rome, proclaimed December 25 the official celebration date for the birthday of Christ. The date not related to the Christ's birth was an effort to integrate the Pagan tradition of winter solstice festivals.

US President : There is apparently no evidence that Abraham Lincoln ever displayed a Christmas tree in the White House. We at Monsieur London will offer a bow-tie to whoever may provide such evidence to us.

Third party carrier : According to the United Nations Children’s Fund - UNICEF Santa would have to make 842 million stops on Christmas Eve, travelling about 221 million miles. If we didn't tell children, they would figure it out with their first math class.

Hairy old white fellow : Santa weirdly enough did not have a Movember page, you can check, we did.

Fiscal evasion : Santa Claus has his own canadian postal zip code, H0H 0H0. As far as Finland is concerned he lives at Joulumaantie 1 96930 Arctic Circle Finland. Norway, Sweden, and Greenland make similar claims on Santa's citizenship. This leads us to the following question : what is Santa's fiscal address ?

One to many : According to an ancient legend, forest animals can speak human languages on Christmas Eve, very recent facts show that people drink too much during family diners...

Kudos : Boots UK Limited, organised the largest ever secret Santa for it’s employees. The present swap involved 1,270 people and took place in 2008.
