thier parents never let them sit on Santa’s lap when they were little, so now its payback time!
If they were trying to be ironic, it smacks of effort. Fail, kiddies!
And a merry Christmas to you too Catherine. Now why don’t you go be nasty somewhere else
Sheesh, Santa. Would it be asking too much for you to get dressed?
Is it me, or does Santa look a little nervous? I don’t think they will be put on the Naughty list!
A menina do canto, que tem atrás da cabeça lenços de papel eu achei bonitinha (xD, parece uma amiga minha).
De resto: realmente muito interessante a imagem (imagino o que eles pediriam ao Papai Noel).
we’re not douchie vampires! . . . we’re goth!
This is the best Santa picture ever!
This may be my favorite! I can’t decide if the kids did this together or if they were made to by some adult. Either way the result would be the same! Love.
Man, Mom sure is lame, dragging us to the mall to get our photo taken with “Santa”.
Yeah, “Merry Christmas or whatever, you got a smoke?”
It’s hard to be hardcore sometimes.
I seriously want to know where I can get this chair. I want one so bad.
Also, the guy on the bottom seriously looks like a guy I used to be semi-friends with. Does anyone know if this is in GA?
Aw! They’re all so cute!
at first I laughed, because it was an Ironic picture. then I started to cry, because this cbould very well be an orphanage or a youth rehab house. and this just shows how much heart “Santa” has. this man is truely a Saint.
“Merry Christmas! Hissssssssssssssssssssssssss!”
i actually know these kids some of them go to my school. and the one on the left is notttt a girl..
OMG that was the santa in my mall!!!!
I think these kids are arranged in order of goth-ness. The two on the left are hard-core goths, complete with dyed hair and black eyeliner, but as you get closer to the right they get less and less goth. The farthest one on the right is the one who thinks being goth is as simple as wearing all black and acting serious all the time. You can tell she’s holding back a smile.
That’s really funny. Not your typical sentimental christmas stuff
This is not what Santa signed up for.
Nightmare before Christmas?
Ok, so all the kids wear black, but there’s an obvious divide here. You got the smiling pagans on the right, the 80s metal kid on the bottom, and the two emo kids on the right. What’s got me cracking up is that Santa (Satan) doesn’t give a crap, and is smiling wider than a proud papa. 0.o heheheheeheheh
Dangit, emo kids on the left … getting merry myself on some “eggnog”, lol
I want to know who paid for the picture and who talked them into getting it taken! That’s one seriously nagging mom if she got her goth kid & friends to pose like this. HAHAHAHA!
Is Santa crying?
Gosh they’re so goff lol
Two of them are almost smiling.
The oversized chair and Santa’s happy expression make the whole picture—classic!
I like ‘goth’ when it’s done right.
Bauhaus = goth.
Slipknot = disposable, forgettable garbage.
I agree with you, and let me just say… You rule.
so, so true.
No, Bauhaus = A school of art and approach to design emphasizing universal clarity and functionality first.
Bauhaus = the originators of Goth music 2nd.
Actually bauhaus are the disposable forgetable garbage cus i don’t know who they are yet i do slayer, slipknot, metallica, megadeath ect
Poor Santa. It’s not easy raising teens, but imagine having to raise them in the pure white and sterile environment of the North Pole. It’s no wonder they feel the need to rebel from time to time.
Best picture ever? i think so….
I love this picture! It needs to be made into a card for Hallmark.
Santa’s list includes emo kids too.
I like how the kid with the Slipknot shirt has knots in his (her?)hair….
this was photoshoped.
Someone had to say it.
I love the kid with pink hair/Slipknot hoodie. He is hugging himself for emotional comfort.
Slipknot =/= goth…
Hell, it’s hardly music.
Exactly. There is nothing goth about those kids.
I LOVE THIS PICTURE, makes me think of my days in high school and college. *sigh*
That is an AWESOME chair!
Where can I get a chair like that! WOW!! and the chick on Santa’s right is HOT!!
Making merry turns to making scary.
Awesome photo! Proof that even Goths have a sense of humor!
+1 to the poster re: the Volturi comment.
“Things have certainly changed on the Island of Misfit Toys since the days of Charlie in the Box and the ostrich-riding cowboy,” Santa said to himself.
Whooo. In my santa pic at 3 (1963), I was scowling, I hated him. The is the single best, or perhaps only good Santa pic I have ever seen. You kids are Great!!
Am I the only one who thinks the Santa is adorable? Ma Ingalls shirt or not!
Love him. <3
One of these things is not like the others…one of these things just doesn’t belong….
The best thing about goth is that all of these kids insist they are expressing themselves and trying to be different….yet they all look the same. They’re just conforming to another standard.
I have always said that too!
Way to stereotype, there. The Goth teens with a brain dress the way they do because they like the style.
Barb, maybe you should stop stereotyping Goths, too?
apparently someone in this picture is more committed than the others…
Wednesday Adams and her friends go to the mall.
Yes, the kids are scary/hillarious but can we just pause a moment to reflect on what santa is wearing? what is that? my grandma has a blue flower print blouse that looks very similar to what santa has on. And the shorts with suspenders? I think we need an episode of “what not to wear” for jolly ol saint nic.
That’s the St. Nick version, and I love it. I miss the Santa that used to be in our mall. This might even be him with a bit of a shorter beard, actually. The ones we have around here now are the lame red suit-white fake trim-fake beard-stupid hat kind. Commercialism has ruined the classics.
i agree – he looks more like an elderly elf than santa!
That flowery blue shirt is the top of Santa’s sleepwear. You haven’t heard of the Santa’s Jammas collection? Available at Herb Phillipson’s, L.L. Bean, and Cabela’s nationwide. Also comes in red plaid flannel, snowflakes, and red and green with reindeer. (can sometimes be found on the floor of Old Navy, size either XS OR XXXLLL, marked down to $8.99….)
note: this is a joke, please don’t go out looking for actual Santa’s Jammas!
Maybe that is because that is SATAN and those kids are NOT dyslexic!
that is simply fantastic. it’s good to have a sense of humor about yourself, and these kids surely do.
That is the Santa from Moorestown, NJ. *Knockout*
That is actually the Santa at the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem, PA – I have a pic of my son with him wearing the same outfit. Maybe he had 2 gigs, but he was definetely our Santa until he died 2 years ago.
Dyslexic goths who though they were posing with Satan
Crap… I just LOL’d all over myself.
Bahhahaaaa … . Winner!
that is by far the FUNNIEST comment i’ve ever seen on this site!! Love it!!
OH! THAT’S PRICELESS! No wonder they look so bummed out!
ALMOST as good as the picture caption! Reeeeaaaallly close!!!
Marc, whoever you are, I love you! Soooo funny!
You win 1000 internets!
yes Marc, you ROCK. now stop signing in under different names and giving yourself pats on the back. lol (ps I am not a fan of “lol”, but some people don’t have a sense of humor and so it is critical to point out when you are joking, wink wink, jk etc)
I can read the t shirt now…”Came to see Satan and all I got was this lousy candy cane” lol!
Marc you made my night!
By far the best, LOL…
Thanks guys!!! I lol’ed over myself while writing it.. glad you enjoyed it.
YESSS!!! I’m speechless.
LOL! Best comment ever!
Thats the best comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! win big!
As a former goth kid (but still goth in my heart) I absolutely love this one.
I wasn’t a goth kid, but a bit of an outcast lol I love this pic! I can just imagine them talking about doing this and how funny it would be!
I was a punk kid with black/blue mohawk in college. I think they look great!
I love this!
oh god! the girl sitting on the santa’s left!
that’s a girl?!
im not sure..
what is this
The one on santa’s left is actually the most normal, she just got caught up in the wrong crowd. I think you mean santa’s right… picture left. I agree, very scary.
