Journey to the Center Of the Mall Santa Universe

By Amy Corbett Storch |

Since I last posted here, my mother has informed me that I am, in fact, a total liar. “You never threw a tantrum on Santa’s lap,” she insisted, “NEVER.”

Well! We’ll just have to see about that, I thought, and started digging through my mountain of completely unsorted, unorganized photographic evidence.

And darn it, she was right. I was lying. Or perhaps mixing myself up with a photo of one of my siblings. Or drunk. AGAIN.

Other than one three-year-old crankpotface, I am remarkably chill and unfazed in most of my Santa photos, despite the fact that these were some of the worst-looking Mall Santas this side of Billy Bob Thornton. I mean, wow.

Let’s take a look, shall we?

Mall Santa Photos From The 1970s and 1980s

1978

I am almost a year old. I like how Santa's beard is approximately eight times the size of his face.

    Aww! You were a cutie-pie! :-)

    I think your mom tried to coordinate your 1980 outfit with the 1979 Santa’s eyebrows! Good try mom!

  3. Mouse says:

    We didn’t take E to sit on Santa’s lap until he was 7 and had a younger brother; we just knew it wouldn’t be a good idea. This year was J’s second visit and we didn’t even think he might not want to. So now I have a screaming-kid picture on our second outing. He’s actually sitting on my knee next to Santa and I’m laughing.

    1980 = Ezra in a pink stripey sweater. Pure adorable-sauce.

  5. Lisa says:

    I’ve always though Ezra looked the most Storch-ish, and Noah and Ike looked like you, but damn if The Mighty Ez isn’t your doppleganger.

  6. Missie says:

    Dude. Seriously. Quit dressing Ez up like a girl just for the sake of your “career”. Not.Cool.
