The 'Merry Christmas from Beyond' Video is Blunt

No holiday season would be complete without some Christmas animations, but the ‘Merry Christmas from Beyond’ video is a bit too blunt for younger viewers.

The documentary style animation focuses on Christmas eve and the arduous journey that Santa Clause must go on to make sure that children around the world wake up to a present. First off, the jolly gentleman has 91.8 million houses to visit in a span of just 31 hours; that equals out to 822.6 houses per millisecond. Santa’s load of gifts would weigh about 321,300 tonnes, while he would have to travel a staggering 650 miles per hour and would need 214,200 reindeer to do it. All these figures combine to equal that Santa Clause would likely go to an early grave before one Christmas eve is complete. Merry Christmas, kids!
