Hilarious Vintage Photos of Santa Claus

Do you have a nice photo with Santa Claus from many Christmases ago? The hilarious vintage photos you'll find after the jump will either make you thankful for your uneventful holiday keepsake, or get you wishing yours had a funny story to tell as well!

Is your memorable snapshot with Santa Claus or Father Christmas as nice and traditional as the Instax shot above? That’s cool, there’s totally nothing wrong with your childhood memento. But if yours is as crazy and priceless as the ones you’ll see in a bit, we bet it has an equally hilarious story behind it!

The vintage photos below from the 1940s to 1970s show some of the most awkward, sullen, and creepiest Santa Clauses that the Yuletide Season has ever seen. Many of the children posing beside the quintessential Christmas figure were too young to figure out something was wrong. But, the first photo below shows two kids who were certainly spooked and were photographed breaking into tears! That has to be my favorite!

Maybe some of you remember having a hilarious snapshot with Santa Claus like the ones above — now would be the best time to share it with all of us in the community!
