He sees you when you’re sleeping.
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows when you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake.
He’s a stranger. A man who’s been stalking your children all year long and now he’s going to break into your house in the middle of the night…
If you take a look at Santa Claus from a different perspective he can be, well, frankly, he can be terrifying.
I remember growing up and being a little freaked out by the prospect of some strange man tiptoeing around my house and maybe even peeking at me while I slept. My brother was all the time trying to organize Santa stakeouts during which we would hide behind the couch in an attempt to see if we could catch the big guy in action. Mom obviously put the kibosh on that every year, thank goodness, because the thought of actually running into the giant bearded man at two in the morning absolutely freaked me out.
So yeah. There is a kind of a creepy vibe about the Santa Claus myth. Not to mention there are some pretty terrifying Santas floating around out there. My husband is a fan of vintage Christmas decor, and he is the proud owner of a little Santa Claus ornament that scares the crap out of me. It got me to wondering what other horrifying Santa Clauses are roaming the planet.
Y’all, make sure no children are standing near you when you click the link to view some of the scariest Santas you’ve ever seen, including the super creepy one hanging on me tree right this second watching every move I make. He knows when I’ve been bad indeed.
25 Christmas fails: Santas, presents, and reindeer gone WRONG!
