If Santa Claus was real and delivered presents to all the kids in the world in one day, how much time will he have to spend at each house and what speed would his sleigh have to go to make it happen?

If???? But he IS real!!!!!

By the way, this might help!

Average number of homes to visit per second = 1,398. This only gives him about 715 microseconds in which to decelerate the sleigh, land on the roof, walk to the chimney, slide down the chimney, distribute the presents and retrace his steps.

Average speed of sleigh: 111 million miles over a 31 hour interval = 3.6 million miles an hour, or a little under 1000 miles a second.
