Hey Santa! Santy! Saint Nicho... oh, never mind. andrea michele piacquadio via Shutterstock

The burning question*: Santa or Santy?

It’s Christmas Eve, so let distract you from the last-minute chaos with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. Christmas Eve and not a child in the house washed.

So do like we do here in HQ and ignore everything you have left to do. Instead, get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues. Possibly.

Tonight: You’d better watch out, you’d better not shout…

Santa Claus is coming to town! Or is it Santy?

We’re wondering this evening if the man in red gets his full name in your household, or if you prefer the very Irish version, Santy?
