Well once again here in dark and gloomy gothic new england,its the holiday for candy companies and dentists we call halloween and and thats a good time to talk about something i first thought of a few years ago,when i wondered about how anything and anyone we can think of has been used for halloween costumes by people all over the place,except santa claus and santa seems to me like a perfectly valid and obviously unique character for people to dress up as,but i have never seen anyone anywhere dressed up as santa for halloween,why?

Maybe such a sacred commercial character is only to be whipped out once a year. I think evil zombie Santa would be a great costume.

Yes definitely and how about an evil santa claus with fangs and horns carrying a blood drenched chainsaw? and theres actually an anti-santa claus called krampus,that nobody ever talks about,who puts all the bad little children into his toy sack and carrys them away > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krampus

Quote:Although Krampus appears in many variations, most share some common physical characteristics. He is hairy, usually brown or black, and has the cloven hooves and horns of a goat. His long pointed tongue lolls out.

That sounds very much like old Joulupukki here (Yule Goat). Santa is still called the Yule Goat in Finnish and sometimes in Swedish as well.

Quote:Pagans used to have festivities to ward off evil spirits. In Finland these spirits of darkness wore goat skins and horns. In the beginning this creature didn't give presents but demanded them. The Yule Goat was an ugly creature and frightened children.

As far as i know,this was the first time Santa Claus was portrayed as evil in a movie,during the "All Through The House" segment of a 1972 British film called Tales From The Crypt and starring a very hot 39 year old Joan Collins >

I always found santa to be kinda creepy,like a wolf in sheeps clothing or something flying around stalking sleeping children and maybe that was after i saw the horror movies tales from the crypt-1972 that i video linked to above,christmas evil-1980 and silent night deadly night-1984,but i did find santa costumes for sale,although i have never seen anyone dress up as santa for halloween,not even once anywhere...
