What occupation could be a better fit for Santa Claus than one that entails getting important packages from Point A to Point B?
Seriously, being a delivery person is at the core of what Santa does. You want someone who knows what it’s like to work on deadline? Santa has arguably more experience under pressure than anyone else on the planet. When your entire existence revolves around spreading joy to children of the world by bringing them the things they want most, you’d better be able to deliver on time and without incident.
Just think of what would happen if kids the world over woke up with empty spaces under the tree, or busted up toys damaged during transit. Santa knows, and that's why he'd be a model employee as a messenger.
