He only gets exercise one night a year.
He lives at the North Pole. It's deadly cold there. So he has to have excess fat to store to keep warm also I am sure it is hard to come by food there so he has to have a supply of fat that his body can break down slowly over time. When he does come out into the world we only feed him sugary sweets.<br />
Does this answer your question you Santa obsessed oddball?
Ahh it's just what we do. Don't know why. I always thought that my parents for high an ate the cookies but hey whateves.
Cos he is a fat, old, lazy S.O.B.
Santa Claus/ Father Christmas: This story grew up in the Eastern Mediterainian, most notably around Greece and Turkey. And is loosely ba<x>sed around A Turkish Bishop. This Bishop when a child, was known for his selflessness, and kindness, he came from a reasonably wealthy family. When he was a young adult, he became aware of a familiy that were facing a predicament, The father of a young woman had lost his wife and son the year before, all he had was his precious daughter, because of various problems, he had been unable to pay his taxes to the local landowner. The landowner had threatened to take the mans daughter as his wife, as "payment " of taxes owed. The man was distraught, and feared losing his daughter to this landowner. The kind young man of wealthy family, went to the village one night, and is said to have thrown a bag of gold coins through the mans window, this kindness became known far and wide, and the mans daughter was saved from an unwanted marriage. When the young man grew up, he was drawn toward the church, and eventually became a Bishop, bishops in that part of the world in those times wore a red robe, add that to the fact that this man lived to be an old man ( grey beard) and you have the ingrediants of the myth of a fat man (wealthy and well fed) who wore a red robe ( Bishops robe) with a beard ( he lived to be an old man) who was extremely kind and giving to all people. Google the story, this man really existed, I cannot recall his name, but he was Turkish, and did become a Bishop.
I am assuming he is really cold, and has 3 suits on..The European version of saint Nick is taller and slender..it is the USA version that has him as a very round guy, that has had way too many all you can eat buffet dinners.
Gobbling down all of those cookies and treats kids from all over the world leave out for him. How he manages to get down a chimney is beyond me!
Because he is a greedy bastard and takes no exercise
He's a compulsive eater because he only c u m s once a year.
All the milk and cookies.
he eats the naughty-not nice ones....
Cuz he's the head honcho
it's fashionable in the elven culture
Saint Nicholas was never portrayed as fat until Clement Clark Moore portrayed him as such in his poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
It's a thyroid condition he picked up visiting Chernobyl.
he only wakes up in december...rest of the time he sleeps. Hence the fat accumulation
