What are the most popular treat to leave for Father Christmas and his reindeer on Christmas Eve?

It is a tradition many of us will have grown up with and is still going strong.

According to the Huffington Post, citing figures from the Office for National Statistics, leaving a treat remains popular in the UK.

It is all about keeping the big man fully fuelled during what can only be described as the busiest night's work of the year.

The reindeer too are in need of some sustenance to keep them going - but what to leave?

Well, the research shows a glass of sherry remains a popular choice, with 32 per cent of people leaving a small glass out on Christmas Eve.

A glass of milk is more popular though, with 41 per cent opting for that.

More than half of us (56 per cent) leave a tasty mince pie.

And the most popular treat to leave is actually for the reindeer - a nice juicy carrot!
