why Santa doesn’t use FedEx

The Truth about Santa: Wormholes, Robots, and What Really Happens on Christmas Eve
.
It’s pretty hard to keep the spirit of Santa alive these days… but maybe explaining Santa’s “magic” in a 20th century way doesn’t work in the 21st century???
.
That’s where this lovely book comes in: The Truth about Santa: Wormholes, Robots, and What Really Happens on Christmas Eve.
According to the author, Gregory Mone, Santa has tools at his disposal, “that are hundreds of years beyond what we have.” Like how his red suit is really a super space suit, and that the reindeer may not help Santa fly as well as his current warp drive on the sleigh? The book has tons of examples of how modern day science and future science impacts Christmas as we know it today… all provided by amazing present-day scientists who are leaders in their field.
.

I’m thinking this is the perfect book for young budding scientists, or those older scientists who need a bit of decor on their holiday coffee table.
And as for the reason that Santa doesn’t use FedEx to deliver his packages? It’s the carbon silly!
