If the code committees felt that pandering to one industry and its anachronistic parcel delivery methods was important, they would have included a requirement for a landing area for sleighs.  Perhaps this can be revisited in the next iteration of the building code.

 

And another thing.  I don’t believe I’ve ever reviewed any structural engineer’s calcs for any of my designs that included a live load allowance for a sleigh loaded with all the presents for all the children in the world.  What do you all do, hold your breath every Christmas Eve and hope you don’t’ read about YOUR design collapsing and ruining some child’s Christmas?  How do you all sleep on Christmas Eve?
