27. Is Santa Claus From Hell?
Someone on a street corner in Chicago in 1902 took this picture of a demonic-looking Santa Claus. It looks like someone gouged the mask’s eyes, and the ramshackle suit looks like he got into a bar fight with a ghost. Furthermore, who knows what this guy is raising money for? He says the cause is sending Santa down 10,000 chimneys, but maybe he needs resources to rob 10,000 houses. This picture could easily have been taken in Times Square in New York this year, but it is over a century old. People really don’t change; they enjoy dressing up like creepy Santa and asking for money so that they can break into houses through the chimneys.
