Merry Christmas Santa?

Around 3.8 million children in the UK hope Santa will visit this year. With an average of 1.8 children per household that's over 2 million homes for Santa to visit. Most of these homes will leave a glass of brandy and a mince pie on the mantelpiece for Santa. Assuming he just has a sip (about 5ml) from each glass of brandy he'll consume 10,000 litres or 400,000 units. With a recommended intake of 14 units or less per week Santa will be well over the top.
If he then loses 1 unit of alcohol per hour he won't dry out until the year 2064. So this year make sure there's a copy of our daily guidelines for sensible drinking leaflet on the mantelpiece as well.
