    To be honest, I’d rather spend my eternity making toys for children rather than spend it praising a god or burning in hell. I would get some satisfaction in that there would be some payback for the previous gift. If I had my druthers, I’d like to make rubics cubes so I might someday solve it.

    Given the mortality rates of those times, most of Santa’s workers will be children. You could say Santa exploits child soul-diers.

    An FYI – Oglaf is incredibly NSFW so I would recommend not clicking the link to the comic in a public setting.

    The mildly deranged penguin, who is a self-proclaimed obvious expert in Arctic matters, points out the usually dead (and sometimes ex-child) labourers are not sent to the North Pole, which is only a fairly minor sleigh reindeering stop. The North Pole fiction for all for tax-avoidance purposes.

    The actual factories of Santa Toys Inc are scattered around the world, usually in places with poor-to-nonexistent labour laws / enforcement, such as the USA (and catholic churches). It also helps that the workers are usually dead, as owning enslaved zombies, even enslaved child zombies, is not specifically illegal.
