Justin Bieber - Christmas Eve

Is it possible for Santa to determine which children were naughty or not? How could he deliver so many presents in one day? It would seem that the laws of physics would make it impossible for Santa Claus to do what people claim he do.

No known species of reindeer can fly. 
There are about two billion children in the world. But Santa does not deliver gifts to Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist children leaving 15% of the total. Further calculations estimate that there are over 90 million homes to which Santa must deliver presents. 

Allowing for the rotation of the Earth, Santa has up to 31 hours of delivery time. Santa must make over 800 deliveries per second.

So for each Christian household with at least one good child, Santa has 1/1000th of a second to land, jump down the chimney, deliver the goods, eat his snack and get back into his sleigh.
Assuming the houses are evenly distributed (they are not); Santa’s total mileage will exceed 75 million miles.
Santa’s sleigh must travel 650 miles per second or roughly 3,000 times the speed of sound. Much faster than any known man-made vehicle. 
If every home leaves Santa a snack of one cookie and an eight ounce glass of milk, our portly hero would consume over 20,000,000,000 calories. Since one pound is equal to 3500 calories, Santa might gain 2900 tons. 
Assuming each child gets only two pounds worth of toys, the sleigh is carrying over 320,000 tons not counting Santa. That is a lot of weight for eight (or nine if Rudolph is invited) reindeer to pull.
Assuming the reindeer Santa employs are ten times stronger than any know reindeer species the job would require more than 200,000 animals in all. 
The weight of the payload and reindeer (over 350,000 tons) traveling at 650 miles per second creates unimaginable air resistance. This will heat the reindeer the same way a spaceship re-entering the earth’s atmosphere. The lead pair of reindeer will absorb 14 quintillion joules of energy per second. 
The huge amount of energy absorbed will create deafening sonic booms and cause the entire team to be vaporized almost instantly.
Santa would be subjected to centrifugal forces more than 17,500 times greater than gravity.
