Yeah, you better watch out. You better not cry. Just whose idea was it to take small children and make them sit on the laps of strange fat men wearing bright red suits, anyway? No wonder there’s such a wealth of images of horrified children whose only wish for Christmas is for mom to get them the hell off the lap of the scary guy with booze-breath and fake beard. For me, one of the creepiest images of Santa would have to be the opening minutes of the film City of Lost Children, in which Santa comes down the chimney, again and again. And again. Since the Scary Santa has turned into a bit of a holiday Internet tradition, I’ve saved you a little trouble by picking some highlights. I’m not sure what the Angry Dwarf Santa from this collection is holding, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t made by elves. This bleary-eyed Santa (from this collection) looks like he’s been on the run and living on Dexies since he abducted the kids in the photo, although the strangely pleased expression of the little girl suggests a possible case of Stockholm Syndrome . And this Santa (from this Sun-Sentinel contest) looks like the flash caught him red-handed as he tried to crush the two children on his lap. And your bonus link: Have a Merry Apocalypsmas!
