Burning Questions: Father Christmas or Santa Claus? North Pole or Lapland? What is he called and where does he live?

News Shopper: What should this man be called and where does he live? What should this man be called and where does he live?

The letters will have started arriving, the toys will be in production and the reindeer will be in the final stages of their training for this year’s deliveries.

What we want to try and settle today is what the big man should be called and where all these activities are taking place.

Should he be Father Christmas or Santa Claus? And does he live at the North Pole or in Lapland?
