    Mall Santa Choke Out

    In 1994 in Florida, while doing his annual Christmas Eve duty of listening to every kid in the Kissimee area tell him what they hope to see under their trees the next morning, Santa caught a 15-year-old flipping him the bird. Enraged from the stress of making lists and checking them twice and the temptation of sweet milk and cookies, Santa Claus left his chair and ran after the boy. Upon catching him, it was reported that Santa choked the teenager until he literally began to turn purple.

    The reason why the kid disrespected Santa in the first place? He never got any good presents as a kid. Looks like that isn't going to change any, as he no doubt was put on the perpetual Naughty Hit List.

    Dead Santa


    All of these events have been pretty trying and traumatic. But how would you feel if you witnessed Santa's death, first hand?

    Pretty poorly, I'd imagine. Well, that's what happened at a 2006 Christmas party in England. Children were happily receiving gifts and enjoying the alcohol-free egg nog and apple cider, when 86-year old Andrew Robertson was suddenly taken ill and died. Not to alarm the kiddos, parents took him to a side room and tried to have him revived as they waited for the paramedics. He was pronounced dead upon the medics' arrival.

    As the children watched Santa taken away in the ambulance, one child asked, "How are we going to get our presents next week if Father Christmas is ill?" Way to keep your priorities in order, punk.

    Drunk Santa Harasses Kids

     After coming home from a party of some sorts, this man dressed up as Santa pulls over and stumbles into someone's backyard. The kids that were playing there immediately had suspicions this guy was a fake, probably because he didn't come through the chimney and, more importantly, he was walking around the yard shouting loudly at them about having lost his reindeer. No joke. Well, at least no intentional joke.

    He tried to be all jovial and Santa-like a bit later when he walked up to one of the kids and tried to put his hat on her head, but since he was a drunk middle-aged man, it didn't come across so much "Santa-like" as "creepy," so the watching mom called the cops.

    Luckily there was no damage done to Santa's reputation that day in the eyes of the kids. They immediately figured out this Santa was an impostor because according to them, "he smelled like alcohol."

    The jury's still out on what exactly the fact that they know what that smells like, and that that means "bad", says about their childhood.

    Santa Accidentally Kidnaps An 8-Year-Old Girl



    Santa rides a motorcycle in this one and there is a stuffed Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in the sidecar. Awesome duo.

    So awesome it attracted the attention of a girl when Santa pulled over at a gas station. Asking her if she wanted to see Rudolph, Santa then hoisted the girl up, put her in the sidecar, and drove off with her, all of this happening with her parents watching.

    When the father caught up with Santa after speeding like hell to get to her, Santa promptly apologized and turned the girl over. His excuse was that he was caught up in Santa mode and that the Santa in him had taken over for a moment. The family forgave him.

    Children Cry As Santa Gets Arrested


    At a major Christmas event in the U.K., children were heartbroken to see police arrest Santa, er "Father Christmas", because of fighting and belligerence.

    After Santa's sleigh showed up at a parade-like event, one of the Santas got into a fist fight with a local teen and they started going at it. It got so bad that not only did children start to cry all the way up and down the street, but the police needed to be called.

    The spectacle was so intense, and the children were so traumatized from seeing what they believed to be the "real" Santa Claus not only get into a fight, but to then be arrested (ostensibly for the remainder of Christmas) that the officers had to take the children aside and explain to them that the Santa they saw was a fake.

    "The children were understandably concerned and upset at seeing what they thought was the real Santa being arrested."

    "Norfolk Police are certain that the real Santa would not approve of people behaving in this way and of course he will continue his pre-Christmas visits and delivery of gifts everywhere on Christmas Day."

    Santa Falls Off Roof in Front of Garage Full of Kids

    Picture it: Christmas Eve, children are gathered in the garage, eagerly hoping to get a glimpse of Santa Claus as he makes his arrival to their home to deliver his presence. As they happily chant, "We want Santa! We want Santa!" the garage door slowly opens and the jolly old elf makes his descent ... presumably tripping and falling from the roof and landing on the car below. We can assume that there was no damage to the car or Santa, as the parents laugh, make no attempt to help him, and later posted this video on YouTube.

    Of course, while the parents are laughing it up, the children are left with a non-graceful image of Santa Claus who almost died because their roof isn't fit for a man and eight tiny reindeer. Way to go, dad.
