We are well and truly into the Christmas spirit - and families across Hartlepool are getting ready to toast the big day.
It's hard to believe that Christmas will have come and gone in just a few days- but there's plenty of fun to get through before then, whether it be visits to Santa, wrapping presents or a trip to the pantomime!
And the question on everyone's lips (as always) is, "what will the weather be like?"
According to the current forecast from the Met Office, Hartlepool is set to is set to see a clear Christmas Eve, with some sun coming through.
Temperatures are estimated to be between 5°C and -1°C on Monday, with a slightly milder forecast for Tuesday. The weather will be cloudy, with a cold start.
