Santa Claus Pictures and Jokes
If you leave a new bike under the tree, I will give you the antidote to the poison I put in the milk.
While working in a store as Santa Claus, I had lots of boys ask me for an electric train set. "If you get your train," I would tell each one, "you know your dad is going to want to play with it too. Is that okay?"
The usual answer was a quick yes, but after I asked one boy this question, he became very quiet. Trying to move the conversation along, I asked what else he would like Santa to bring him.
He promptly replied, "Another train."
Dear Father Christmas,
My mother told me to write to you and say thanks for the train set. My
dad plays with it all the time.

Why does Santa go down the chimney?
A popular urban myth is that back in 1928 Coca Cola invented Santa Claus. What fuels this myth is that his red coat matches perfectly the Coca Cola livery.
The truth is that while early Santa Claus often wore green, Santa Claus in red was established by the 1860s, long before Coca Cola was invented.
Other Names for Santa Claus
While it is true that the name Santa Claus was an American 'invention' sometime before 1870. The original name for the 'figure' associated with the mid-winter festival was Saint Nicholas, or St. Nick. Other languages have variations or translations of Saint Nicolas, for example, Père Noël, Papa Noel, Babbo Natale, Papai Noel, Father Christmas, and Kris Kringle.
Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people only once a year.
It's not only kids who make their way onto Santa's lap. There's something about the jolly man in the red suit that sparks a bit of romance in certain couples.
One Santa says that he sees about two or three young men every season who use Santa to help propose to their girlfriends. Sometimes it works like a charm. Other times, not so much.
In one case, the suitor was positive that his girlfriend would ask Santa for an engagement ring. But when Santa asked the young lady what she wanted, her reply was, 'A refrigerator for our new condo.'
Her boyfriend stood nearby, perplexed. Santa seeing the sweat beginning to form on his forehead asked,'"Are you sure there isn't anything else you want?'
'No, I think that's it,' she replied.
Santa asked her if she wanted something else one more time, not for her sake, but for the boyfriend's.
The boyfriend finally took the hint, got down on one knee and proposed.
A Santa Claus is facing the sack from a Dutch shopping centre after he smacked a young boy for pulling his beard.
Peter Hendriks hit the boy on the backside in front of dozens of shoppers in the town of Rijswijk. Defending his actions, he said: 'If I hadn't done that, he would have pulled off my beard and dozens of children would have been traumatised.'
Fire officials from Lubbock have informed Will and Guy that a Texas man who had to be rescued from the chimney of his house was not trying to be Santa Claus. Apparently he was just locked out of his house.
Fire officials told us they had to hoist the 22-year-old man by rope from the chimney of his house in southwest Lubbock, Texas, USA recently.
Deputy Fire Marshal Robert Loveless tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that the man and his family were locked out of their house. Loveless says the man, wanting to save the price of a locksmith, decided to enter the house through the chimney as his wife and child waited outside around 1 am.
He added that the man's wife called 911 after he became stuck. Fire-fighters hauled him out about an hour later.
He was not injured.

A Few More Amusing Santa Pictures
This pure gold statue of Santa Claus weights 20 kilos, Santa even has 10 gold coins in his belt. It was created by Ginza Tanaka and is offered on sale for 200 million yen ($1.8 million).
Tanaka's company took 3 months to fashion the statue. Rumour has it that he created 2 or even 3 of these pure gold Santas. It is difficult to judge its size from the picture, but Santa stands about 40 centimetres, those lucky enough to live in Tokyo can see the statue in the Shinsaibashi district of Osaka.
The move in Vienna has been followed by Christmas markets across Austria and Germany where St Nicholas is the traditional bearer of Christmas gifts. Bettina Schade, from the Frankfurter Nicholas Initiative in Germany commented, 'We object to the material things, the hectic rush to buy gifts, and the ubiquity of the bearded man in the red suit that are taking away from the core meaning of Christmas.
A Vienna city hall spokesman added that Santa Claus is an English language creation, people who want to see him should go to America where I am sure Coca Cola will be happy to oblige. 'The Christian origins of Christmas, like the birth of Jesus, have receded into the background. It's becoming more and more a festival that is reduced to simply worldly gifts and commerce.'
Footnote: In Europe, New Year seems to be more important than Christmas.
In Baltimore there lived a boy,
He stole the milk of hungry kittens,
Yet people pardoned
Like whooping cough, from child to child,
The children wept all Christmas Eve
What good to rise and bar the door?
