Merry Christmas Everyone!

This week we tackle four questions. They are:

Mrs Christmas help Father Christmas to see who is naughty and who is nice?

Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline, Stardust, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, the picture books about a sneezing panda called Chu and wonderful books is here to answer that one for us with a tale of Mrs Christmas.

Next up is Tommi who asks has an astronaut ever seen Father Christmas? Find out about NASA's encounter with Santa as well as how Jingle Bells became the first song played in space.

You'll also discover whether reindeers can see in the dark, why we have Christmas trees and who invented Christmas crackers.

One lucky listener has also won tickets to ice skate at the Natural History Museum in London.
