An Internet Theory: Santa Uses Harry Potter Magic

Posted by Cybil on December 12, 2016


Can Santa Claus's secret powers be explained by some Harry Potter magic? Well, that's one theory being floated around the internet this holiday season.

Redditor Arumple makes the claim that the real reason Santa can deliver presents all over the world in one single night is that he's using Floo powder. For the uninitiated, Floo powder is a glittery substance that allows witches and wizards to travel between households. It's considered a faster mode of transportation than broomsticks, obviously.

"The whole 'Santa coming down the chimney' thing is clearly just a muggle conspiracy to cover up the fact that Santa is a wizard traveling by Floo powder," Arumple wrote on Reddit.

Other Santa and Harry Potter fans quickly jumped in with their own theories, including: "Rudolph's nose didn't glow, it was just Wizard Santa's patronus leading the way," and "Santa is clearly a wizard with a time turner."

Abigail I really hate to be a downer, but the reason he can deliver all the presents isn't because he's a wizard, it's because he's a Time Lord. With a TARDIS.

Ryan Vaughan Has anyone else read the Nightside series by Simon Green? In it he talks about all the buildings in the Nightside being "bigger on the inside than on the outside" because it's only way they can fit everything in". An operation as large as Santa's would need a building like that wouldn't it. The bigger on the inside theory would certainly explain how Santa could fit all those toys in one sack. The futuristic technology that the Nightside has in abundance would also explain the flying sleigh. The evidence is undeniable Santa's village is located in the Nightside.

I concur. His sled is a disguise for the fact that it's a time machine that's bigger on the inside, and it's his workshop.


Madeline (The Bookish Mutant) Wonder if he’s ever said the location incorrectly, like Harry does in The Chamber of Secrets. That would be a problem...;-)
Then again, he is Santa Claus, so...

Lanie Santa clause never gets locations wrong. But sometimes he does get presents wrong. ;)

I think you are all partially right. Floor powder for short distances and a TARDIS for long jumps and interstellar too. After all other aliens need Santa to deliver. Their presents too.
