Santa Claus with a teddy bear

Have you ever wondered how Santa spends the other 364 days besides Christmas? Well, the experts have spoken – and according to the nation’s children, over a fifth (21%) of 5-8 year olds think he loves tucking into fish and chips, nearly a fifth (16%) thinks he spends Halloween dressed as a pumpkin and a quarter (24%) thinks his favourite Sunday Roast companion is the Tooth Fairy..

The light-hearted festive poll was commissioned by photo gifting service PhotoBox, who print customer photos onto a wide range of products, including photo books, canvases and calendars to name a few. They asked children to describe what they think Santa does when he’s finished delivering their presents, and the results were magical. According to the children, whilst December is a given, Santa’s January is spent fast asleep next to the glowing embers of a cosy log fire (69%), teddy in hand.
