The Evolution of Santa in Movies Infographic

 

Christmas time is here once again, and if you’re a good little boy or girl, you’ve already got everyone on your list exactly what they wanted. Now that all the shopping is done, do you just kick back unentertained, drinking copious amounts of egg nog in silence? No… you spend the rest of December watching Christmas movies, of course!

Santa has always been a significant part of almost any Christmas movie: he has a specific concept of good and evil, he always prefers faith over skepticism, and he can even be duplicitous—is he out to help us or is he out for himself? The best Santa movies have these kinds of themes that get to the heart of our holiday mythos. On the other side of the [chocolate] coin, there are the Santa movies where he goes to Mars or he gets his sleigh stuck in the sandy beaches of Florida. No matter which type of Christmas film you prefer, we think you’ll enjoy this chronological look at Santa Claus’ cinematic exploits in this very merry infographic.

Long before Ebenezer Scrooge was the name most associated with being a Christmas grouch (we're talking pre-Christian, pagan era long), Krampus was the terror around town. And far worse than being an elderly miser that stamps about muttering "Bah, Humbug," Krampus, the cloven hoofed Christmas demon, will beat you with switches and drag you to hell! As you can imagine, people have been harboring some ill-will toward this creepy character for quite some time now, and it seems that the release of Krampus' recent film has inspired a fresh batch of Twitter trolls to take to the social media network and give this dastardly demon a roast!

Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" segment, but with a Christmassy twist, we bring you Jimmy Kringle's "Krampus Reads Mean Tweets."
