This one didn’t quite make it in time for the Christmas holiday, I hope you can forgive me. I just didn’t feel like waiting until next holiday season to put this up. Anyhow, here’s my idea.
Considering the notion that St. Nick silently infiltrates homes without a sound leads me to suggest that he probably is a highly trained ninja. This really is the only logical explanation, considering the fact that he’s an extra large man. He’s been doing this for years – he’s old school. From this, I gather that his footwear of choice is probably a pair of Chuck Taylor’s.
