Almost everyone has a childhood picture of themselves perched up on Santa’s lap and while the youngsters sometimes cry and sometimes smile, Kris Kringle usually maintains his jolly expression of glee. But sometimes Santa just isn’t the Old Saint Nick we’ve come to love. Sometimes he’s downright creepy and here’s the proof. Here are some of the creepiest Santa photos in order of “kind of weird” to “better sleep with the lights on tonight.”
Special thanks to Creepy Santa Photos for their impressive collection of horrific images of Mr. Claus.
The only explanation I can think up for everyone’s expression in this photo is that Santa just told Flickr user RaGardner4’s son Dylan he’s on the naughty list and whatever put him there angered Santa to his very core.
I have no idea what’s going on with this Finnish Santa spotted by Flickr user esaskar. Is he trying to be incognito? Maybe he’s trying to be funny? Or maybe that’s just what Finns think American Santas look like. Whatever the case, the end result is just plain odd.
Here’s a sadly stereotypical Santa picture –Old Kris Kringle curled up with a bottle of booze. Thanks for confirming all the tales istolethetv.
While Santa masks are usually horrifically terrifying for no good reason, at least this Santa has a reason for looking so evil –it was apparently so cold in Edmonton that even Jolly Old St. Nick had to wear facial protection that made him look like a masked murderer. Of course, this isn't even close to the worst Santa mask anyway, as you'll see a few images down.
Not only is this guy making a creepy face, but he also looks just like the killer from Silent Night Deadly Night. Fortunately, Arleen was too young to have seen that movie at the time. Of course, these days she wonders, “I don’t know how my mother let me sit on his lap!”
