Santa Claus: How Many Laws Does He Break?

Alright, this one is meant more for fun than anything else. We can't indict poor Saint Nick for making children's lives better each year. However, I want to look at the broad legal responsibilities our own Kris Kringle faces each year when he leaves the North Pole and heads to the City of Angels. As a matter of fact, Mr. Claus violates several premises liability laws each year. Have you increased Premises Liability Risks? He takes on undue risk by landing on the snowy roof of your house. If he falls off the slippery surface, you might be responsible for his injuries. This includes whether you left out reindeer food for him or not! Ag and Market Violations. If you live in a state like New York or California, you may have committed a pretty big crime without realizing it. By leaving out cookies and milk for the jolly red elf, you may be serving food not prepared in a state inspected commercial kitchen. As a result, you are on the hook if he gets sick or food poisoning. Trespassing. Unfortunately, without your invitation, Mr. Claus committed trespassing on your property. Santa did not listen to your repeated warning to avoid the Christmas lights. Loose Livestock. St. Nick brought with him a number of unregistered animals, unable to keep them on the farm at the North Pole. Might seem pretty innocent, but it's Santa that is breaking the Ag and Markets laws this time-- and a pretty egregious one. Do we know if Rudolph got his vaccination shots or not? Product Liability. Mr. Claus may think he's helping out your kids by leaving toys inside your house. However, some of these products may be defective or even dangerous. Bet you he didn't think of that when he loaded them onto his sleigh! Theft. You left out cookies and milk for Santa-- or did you? Were they there for another purpose? Maybe you left them out for a Christmas night snack. Instead, he made off with the food without even leaving a thank you!
