In what began as a series of cell phone and leaked security videos, it’s now clearer than ever that Santa Claus uses a network of self storage facilities across the United States during his annual Dec. 24 sleigh ride to deliver gifts to the girls and boys on his “Nice” list.

  • Dallas, Texas
  • Denver, Colo.
  • Las Vegas, Nev.
  • San Bernardino, Calif.
