Where Does Santa Actually Live?
The North Pole!
But then why can’t we find him?
Rumor has it, Santa resides outside the North Pole.
One Wikipedia page claims he lives in Korvatunturi, Finland.
Another website boasts Santa’s home residence during the summer months to be Uummannaq, Greenland!
But if we know where he lives, why hasn’t anyone found him?
A New Theory
The very smart scientists over at NOAA Satellites have a different theory as to why Old Saint Nick is so hard to find.
They think he lives at the magnetic North Pole!
Where exactly does #Santa live? If he's in the geographic North Pole then it's 90°N, 0°W, but – if he's at the magnetic north it's constantly moving as Earth’s magnetic field changes. Which may explain why his workshop can be so hard to find! More pics: https://t.co/eRJpPpx698 pic.twitter.com/8a1Eg2v4Iw

If this is true, it explains why he is so hard to find!
Since the magnetic North Pole is always moving, so is Santa. This way we never know his exact location!
The Truth About Reindeer
Santa’s reindeer are all girls!
Even Rudolph, sorry boys.
It turns out all of the songs and legends we know tried hiding this bit of information from all of us.
You see, male reindeer shed their antlers at the end of mating season every fall. This means that by December, all of the boy reindeer are left without antlers.
Now unlike most deer, female reindeer have antlers. And unlike their male counterparts, they keep their antlers through spring!
This means that if Santa’s reindeer have antlers during Christmas, they must be females!
