He Also Sees You When You’re Sleeping

“This is a photo of me and my two sisters with Santa Claus, and there was some random guy who was looking through the window as the photo was taken. We didn’t realize he was in there ’til we got the photos back.”

Santa Got Run Over By A Reindeer

“This picture was taken in about 1952. The boy sitting on the lap of ‘Santa’ is my husband’s cousin, Teddy. ‘Santa’ is ‘Uncle Bob’ who apparently didn’t notice that his mask was melting off. My husband thankfully doesn’t remember any of this. No word if little Teddy ever recovered from the trauma.”
