Santa Claus/Saint Nicholas/Father Christmas/Kris Kringle — whatever you call him, he's coming to town. He's making a list and checking it twice. He's already found out if you've been naughty or nice.
You better watch out, though. Some Santas aren't all about that holly jolly. Hollywood has given us plenty of Kris Kringle characters — some better than others. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find an ideal Santa!
However, since it is the season for lists, we thought it right to figure out which cinematic Santa best fits the bill. Would you find him kissing mommy? More importantly, how would he react to running over grandma?
Ahead, a ranking of 10 Hollywood Santas, from the ones least likely to have a belly full of laughs to the ones we all want to slide down our chimney at night.
Ho, ho, ho. On we go!
