Well Santa’s job would seem like the best job to have but if you really think about it it can kinda stink. Here are some disadvantages of being Santa 🙂

#1 Santa has to get up really early to get ready to travel around the world.

#2  If there are like a billion kids in the world and all of them put out treats for Santa you would get really sick from eating all of them.

#3 Santa has to take care of a lot of elves and eight reindeer.

#4 Santa has to travel really high to get to all of the houses of children so if you were scared of heights it might not end well.

#5 Santa has to deal with sleigh dysfunction be for Christmas so there are no problems on Christmas Eve.

#6 Santa has to work out a lot so he can burn of all of those cookies. 

#7  Santa has a lot of different names so he has to put a hole bunch of names for Santa on all his gifts and find the right name to fit what the family calls him.

#8 You cant have very many friends besides the elves and his wife because no one can see him.

#9 You have to have a wife.

#10 If you are a girl and you want to be Santa you have to become a boy.

And those are my ten disadvantageous of being Santa Clause.

  1. Hi Chloe! I am a college student at Stockton University in Pomona, NJ. I loved the creativity behind your blog post! I always thought it would be so cool to be Santa Clause. I had never taken the time to think of all the disadvantages till reading your post. Your post made me open my eyes and perhaps I wouldn’t ever want to be Santa Clause. I think I will leave the job to Jolly old Saint Nick himself. I love your point # 2, there are so many children throughout the world and that is a lot of snacks to have to eat! I think I would have a belly ache or even want to take a nap. Which I know I couldn’t because I would have many children relying on me to bring them their presents. Thank you for your insight and the great blog. Keep on writing you have a wondeful imagination.

I had never really thought of anything bad in Santa Clause’s life, only the good things! Today was rainy and kind of gloomy and this definitely brought out the sunshine!

  4. Dear Chloe,
    I totally agree with you. I never thought that there would be disadvantages. I thought eating cookies was great but I guess you do have to work out.
