The Physics of Christmas: From the Aerodynamics of Reindeer to the Thermodynamics of Turkey by ROGER Dr. HIGHFIELD



A witty, scientific investigation into all the rituals and icons of Christmas, from the Star in the East to jolly old Saint Nick--who, Dr. Highfield estimates, has just over two ten-thousandths of a second to get between each of the 842 million households he must visit on Christmas Eve. 25 illustrations.
