Best Funny/Failed Santa Photos

By Amy Morrison

This really has nothing to do with pregnancy except that someone gave birth to each and every one of these people, plus, these Santa photos are just too good not to share so what the heck.

Plus, kids tend to go from a happy, clueless baby to a very aware ‘why are you leaving me on a stranger’s lap’ toddler in the blink of an eye. This often becomes an embarrassing scene when your kid has made this cognitive leap without telling anyone. I mean, they aren’t wrong. Everything about this scenario scream WTF and I don’t blame them for freaking out one bit.

Enjoy these fantastic photos that embody the magic of Christmas.

The best of the worst Santa Photos

Little Mikayla was quite content to sit on her green chair until Santa came up behind her and screamed, “There be gold in those hills! Arrrrhhhh.”

What in the Rasputin hell is going on here? Is 4270 the number of children that have needed therapy after their Christmas picture?

Even Santa himself was startled by the gas revenge his food court burrito was taking.

I have no doubt that this little girl is chewing on a Xanax after her Percocet smoothie to get her up on this lap.

Why do I suspect that there is also a puddle of urine under this Santa’s chair?

“One time. Just one fucking time I’d like a holiday where the shit wasn’t scared out of me!”
