If that’s how you feel, imagine how Santa feels once the calendar hits December 1. He has naughty-and-nice lists to track, wishes to fulfill, a huge team of elves to oversee, reindeer to train, and highly complex logistics to nail down by December 24.

In short, he manages a massive supply chain every year – and he does it without a hitch. Because he has been pulling off this feat for hundreds of years, we went behind the scenes to find out just how Santa handles it all.
