Santa the Serial Killer?

Scary Santa

I had to laugh when I came across this image yesterday and realized how different our ideas about the meaning of things change over the years.  In this image which was obviously set up, Santa is looking through the window at two children, one is asleep on the floor but the other is still wide awake and staring up at the decorated tree.  Looking at this image with 21st Century eyes, at least in my case, especially the look on Santa’s face as he gazes into the window, it seems sinister and creepy.
