Thank you for quick accept!(1) As many people in the north knows, Santa Claus does in fact live in northern Finland. To be more exact, he lives on the mountain of "Korvatunturi". Due to the harsh whether conditions on that mountain, there is no way for anyone to visit the mountain to prove that he does not live there.
(2)Picture proof of him visiting a Swedish family:

What is Santa Claus? "Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, or simply Santa (Santy in Hiberno-English), is a legendary figure of Western Christian culture who is said to bring gifts to the homes of well-behaved ("good" or "nice") children on Christmas Eve (24 December) and the early morning hours of Christmas Day (25 December)". From the definition given in Wikipedia.

There is about 526 million Christian kids who celebrates Christmas.And that is not counting non religious kids celebrate Christmas.So that means Santa has to deliver presents to 22 million kids an hour. And that also means delivering presents to 6,100 kids a SECOND.

If Santa has to to travel 316,899,308.041 miles on Christmas,and has at least 32 hours to do so Santa has to be travelling 1,800 miles a hour. As we know Santa Claus is Famous for his sleigh being pulled by his reindeer's. Reindeer's top speed is 55 miles an hour. While in Santa Claus lore the sleigh he rides on is being pulled by 9 reindeer's.
