Amazon Prime, Santa, and Christmas Magic

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clarke

When I was a boy, I stopped believing in Santa Clause because I stopped believing in the feasibility of delivering packages all over the world in one night.

Then Amazon Prime came along.

Now it’s possible for me to do all of my shopping 4 days before Christmas. I can get gifts and doodads of astonishing variety from all over the world shipped to my door in fewer than two days.

I’m starting to believe in Santa again.

Except this time, Santa’s name is Jeff, he owns a rocket company, and his reindeer are package delivery drones.
