The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers' brush with Father Christmas in his youth has convinced him the jolly present giver is real.
The SOMEBODY TOLD ME hitmaker spotted mysterious sleigh tracks and hoof-prints from Santa's reindeer on his doorstep one Christmas morning - but no tell-tale footprints.
He says, "I lived out in the woods of California when I was 11, and my mum and dad would wake my brothers and me up really early to say that Santa had been, that they'd heard someone on the front deck.
"This one year, though, they took us out to the deck where we saw hoof marks and sleigh tracks in mud... but there were no footprints anywhere!
"To this day, they still insist they had nothing to do with it, and they insist it really was Santa.
"Dude, I'm 30 years old, and I'll tell you right now, it was f**king Santa!"
