At least for those who heard of least action principle (which becomes least potential energy principle in the absence of action).

So, molecules (bunches of electric charges) colliding with each other about 10^13 times per second (rate of thermal motion at room temperature) have plenty of opportunities to try various mutual orientations of charges and bind together or break apart.

So, there is nothing else in life than chemical reactions proceeding in least action direction. Flow of Sun's energy with food decrease entropy locally (at the expense of increasing Sun's energy entropy) making more complex system out of less complex.

No Santa is needed.

But how many people even heard about least action (or entropy increase) principles? Not much. So, for the rest there is a quick and safe explanation (=Santa(s) the creator(s), god(s) pushing Sun across the sky, Budda(s), Allah(s),guardian angels, devils, bad/good spirits, etc.)

I think, if you are comfortable and happy with Santa or gods of Christ, etc - then it is completely fine, nothing is wrong with you. After all - who cares? (Just a bunch of dumb nerds (scientists) - and who cares about what they think a life is?).
