Trivia

It is implied that the "Or Else Factor" was the cause of the Great Flood detailed in the Biblical story of Noah's Ark. However, this story is from the first book of the Bible, Genesis, which took place well before the birth of Christ and the origin of Christmas. This claim is further contradicted by dialogue in the movie, which establishes that the Santa Claus role originated with St. Nicholas in the 3rd Century - roughly three hundred years after the first Christmas and countless centuries after the Biblical Flood.
