They lied to you. The magic, the reindeer? That’s all bull. Saint Nicholas is a gearhead, and his sleighs are many—a vintage Fiat, a city bus, a beater ’69 Impala, a passel of Harleys. Whatever gets the job done. Need proof? Here are some photos of Santa Clauses all over the world motoring.

Merry Christmas, you filthy animals.
