It is usually Santa here but I think I have been saying Santy to DS now that I think about it.

Santy. We always said that as kids and now say it to nieces/nephews.

ive always said santy, but id like if santa came naturally to me. it just feels weird saying it. santy makes me sound like a hick. as does the word hick. i must be a hick.

Def Santy for me, not sure if its just an Irish thing or a country-Irish thing...I just heard someone on the radio last week talking about "Santy's Village" or something down the country and both the presenters were bemused at why it was Santy's and not Santa's...I was like HELLO! Were you never a child in Ireland? Shame they can't hear me shouting at the radio! :-8

I say "Santy" but write "Santa" - weird, I know. But saying "Santa" sounds weird but "Santy" looks weird when it's written down. Suppose i could go all British and just say "Father Christmas"
