Little known fact about me

Next to clowns, I find the commercialized version of Santa Claus to be one of the most frightening creations ever.

When I was a kid, my parents tried to take me to visit a mall Santa Clause. You know, get my picture taken. Oh hell no. Even at age five, I knew there was something wrong with an obese, white dude with a beard who knew when I was sleeping wanting to take a picture with me. I screamed and cried and refused to be anywhere near the mall Claus. I was happy to know my parents got me gifts (and stored them in the closet, thanks guys!)

I still find him creepy. Except for the modern Miracle on 34th street movie Claus who is decidedly not creepy (it's Richard Attenborough, for crying outloud).

Puppy is right. He should really bite them and kill them dead. The world would be a better place without inflatable creepy trespassers.

I have a love of those older Santa's that tend to look like old withering wizards or mountain men. They are awesome and I like to collect (not a very big collection, mind you) Christmas decorations that feature him as opposed to the Coca Cola Santa.

However, if you think Santa is scary, imagine this dude coming to your house: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus

Me too, actually. It's the cherub, rosy-cheeked, list-checking, dude who magically squeezes down your chimney that creeps me out!

Egad to Krampus! Scary!

Epic!! That's how I would have reacted had my parents convinced me to get closer than 50'!
