Snapchat had a massive year in 2015 and was arguably one of (if not the) most-talked about app of the year - but what if Santa himself had a go in the run-up to his biggest day at work?

22% of people Ireland have a Snapchat account with 68% of those using it daily. The biggest demographic using the service is the 16-34 bracket but Santa would be more on an early adopter than non-magical counterparts his own age. However, even Santa can't beat the Irish as Dublin-based analytics firm Statcounter says that we have the highest penetration of phone internet users in Europe, North America and South America.
