Could Santa's Lack of Sleep on Christmas Eve Harm His Health?
Date:12/24/2010

ormally nap during the day and are active at night. So as long as Rudolph and the rest of the team are well-rested beforehand, they should be ready for their long and demanding journey on Christmas Eve.

Jet lag is a major issue for Santa. In order to deliver presents at exactly midnight all around the world, he has to spend 24 hours in trans-meridian travel with rapid changes in time zones, giving his body clock little chance to adapt, Cappuccio and Miller noted.

If Santa did this year-round, his well-being would be at serious risk. But he'll have a whole year to practice good sleep habits and remain fit and healthy.
