    Default Creepy Santas....

    10 Creepy Santas Whose Laps We Want Nothing to Do With:

    All month long, starting after Halloween in some places), legions of Santas have been perched in malls all over the country, waiting for your children to climb atop their laps and whisper to them their most secret desires. The Mall Santa thing has to be one of the creepiest traditions we have, and yet it seems like it will never die — and as a result, a lot of people out there in internetland have embarrassing pictures of themselves as kids posed with Santa, and sites like sketchysantas are there to redistribute the most humiliating of those memories for the rest of us to enjoy.
    This first creepy Santa is a vintage found photograph owned by collector Albert Tanquero, who has an amazing array of vernacular/found photos on his Flickr page. It’s easily the scariest picture of Santa I’ve ever seen, if not one of the creepiest photos I’ve ever come across, right down to the taxidermied donkey.


    The following Santas were found in the voluminous archives of sketchysantas:
    Santa should at least try and look like he’s having fun, right?

    Santa’s about to have a complete mental breakdown. He’s got the crazy-eye, as they say.



    How can she be so calm with this leering maniac’s arm around her?

    Note to Santas everywhere: masks are scary. If you look so unlike Santa Claus that you must make use of a mask to sustain the illusion, you might consider another line of work.





    Santa looks like death warmed over.

    I think Santa and his lap-dweller might be the same age. So much gone horribly awry here …


    Santa’s got a Percodan addiction.


    80s glasses look weird on Santa. Also, Santa looks a little like Mark Borchardt from American Movie (then again, maybe it’s just the 80s glasses).

    Merry Christmas, people!

    That first demon-one looks straight out of American Horror Story.

    I like the old one where they got Rasputin to play Santa. I bet he got the kid and the donkey drunk on vodka.

    What's with this guy? I know a lot of people don't like clowns, but I'd rather hug ol' Pennywise than this Santa!

    Apart from the first one and the third one (serial killer anyone? ), I find most of these funny rather than scary, though I don't have children so that might be why.

    So you like your Santas wearing freakish horror movie masks?

    Not particularly, but I was never scared of clowns either, a childhood fear that skipped me.

    I can't stop laughing at some of these! A few are creepy, but I'm with Kimmi and find them mostly funny.

    I think they're funny now, but from the point of view of a little kid being forced to have their photo taken it could be like a nightmare. I remember Santa as jolly and fat and ruddy (drunk) and beardy, not plastic and/or sociopathic. But then most of these kids look pretty meh about the whole thing so they obviously weren't too traumatised (other than the last few completely traumatised ones).

    I remember seeing an old family photo from like the 20s or 30s with the scariest looking St Nick - he was wearing a bizarre sort of Cossack uniform and looked like Nosferatu with a nightcap. I wish I could find it.

    My favorites are the two masked Santas and the drunk/sleepy Santa.
