Poll: Does Santa wrap presents in your house?
He seems to go along with each family’s traditions but what was yours?

WE NEVER THOUGHT we would get to this point but here it is: our readers are having a row over Santa.

Emmet Lynch got in contact with us to ask if we could help solve a “heated discussion” between him and his wife over whether Santa wraps presents that he drops off to children each Christmas.

In Emmet’s house growing up, Santa didn’t leave wrapped presents – “It’s great to see everything together and ready to play with,” says Emmet. But in his wife Emma’s house, Santa always left wrapped presents – “She says it’s all about the excitement of opening the wrapping paper.”

CLEARLY, Santa goes along with whatever family tradition rules in each household because he knows everything and just wants everyone to be happy.

But it got us wondering.

Did Santa leave wrapped presents in your house?
