Hilarious Santa photo fails

Kids with Santa photo

I remember my first photo with Santa. OK, actually I don’t as I was only a few months old. But I remember the picture. I was flashing a huge cloth nappy and had only started growing hair in patches, therefore resembling a little old man who’d lost a fight with a whipper snipper.

As a shy one, I was way too frightened to cry. So instead I chose to look at Santa in total bewilderment (believe me, I was screaming on the inside).

Here are some Santa photo fails where the kids (and Santa) aren’t afraid to wear their hearts – or terror – on their sleeves.

Happy horrordays!

This one makes even my thick skin crawl – and not just because it says “candys”.

You gotta protect yourself as much as you can…

Though why not try a non-violent solution? Put a window between you and Santa…

Or ask him very nicely if you can swap places.

Never give up. Here’s hoping for another smiling Santa photo sometime before she graduates high school.

The perfect Santa photos by some seriously suave kids. Proof that if you take a good Christmas pic, you can grow up to be the CEO and Operations Manager of the sensational Stuck On You (and whatever their brother does).
