Fun Facts About Santa's Annual Sleigh Ride

Santa's Holiday Travel Plans

There might not be a traveler out there with as many miles under their belt as the man, the myth, the legend himself: Mr. Santa Claus.

The jolly-spreading magical man (red) suits up every December 24th to deliver presents to all the good boys and girls around the world and although he can skip the airport lines and traffic jams, good old St. Nick still deals with the hustle and bustle of holiday travel.

Did you know that the average person spends approximately $759 on holiday travel while it costs Santa a whopping $0? (He is magical, after all.) And if you thought your journey to grandma's house was a long distance, Santa covers 175 million miles, in just one night.

How does the rest of Santa's travel experiences compare to us common folk? Well, did a little research to show us what traveling like Santa is really like. Check out their nifty infographic below for more fun facts!
