Christmas is coming - the goose is getting fat. And in just over a month, Santa Claus could be on his way!
Yesterday we asked for your thoughts on Santa Claus - and when children should be told the truth about the man in the red suit.Here are some of your comments from social media about Santa - and what you think about the magic he brings to the Christmas season.
Jan Short: "You have to believe Santa is real otherwise the magic of Christmas is lost. Yes it's more special while children are younger but that shouldn't stop just because you get older. It just then becomes another day."
Linda Savage: "I am 65 and still believe in the magic of Christmas in all its forms, and Santa, well i will reserve judgement on how real he is till after Christmas Day in case he forgets to leave my presents."

Laura-Jane D-Arcy Collins: "There's no harm in giving your child a bit of Christmas magic in their life."
Tracey Anne Tate: "Santa is magic and caring and love and kindness and thinking of others for one day every year. So this is why we tell children about him."
