15 Creepy Christmas Photos that Prove Santa Used to be TERRIFYING.

Who lied and told these Santas that it was okay to dress like dead-eyed, bearded demons in front of children? If nothing else, these pictures show just how different(ly horrifying) Christmas was back in the day. Let's just be thankful that we have our jolly, rosy cheeked, coke-drinking version of Santa to bring us joy every year instead of these suspicious looking creepers. Krampus is scary enough, please don't take his job, Santa! Enjoy these 15 bizarre and spooky Christmas photos:     

1. Unsavory Santa

This child knows what's up. That is a very warranted look of suspicion right there.

2. "This Child is Mine Now"

Something tells me you don't want to know what's in that gift, little girl. Or behind that mask... *shudder*

3. He Sees You When You're Sleeping

And he sees into your soul, apparently. 

4. Mystery Box

I hope whatever's in that box can protect that kid from the sinister, blush-wearing man.

5. Halloween, Christmas Edition

Looks like Michael Myers took a break from killing teenagers to give out gifts. Guess he's atoning? A nice gesture, I guess.

6. Night of the Living Claus

Even the donkey looks scared!

I mean, can you blame her? WHERE ARE HIS EYES?!

8. Just No

No no no no no no no no no no no no nooooo.

9. You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Cry

The only thing these kids are getting for Christmas is nightmares.

10. Lifeless Eyes

The boy on the left totally understands the gravity of the situation. 

11. No-Eyed Nicholas

I would be confused too, kid.

12. Looming Figures

Surprisingly, Santa is the only redeeming thing about this seriously misguided bedside visit.

13. Santas's Lair

"The elves were no longer of use to me so I.... dismissed them"

14. Out of the Fog, Into Your Bedroom

Santa traded in his garish red robes for a more simple, black affair to stay en vogue.

15. The Whole Gang
