As Christmas draws nearer, our hearts are filled with joy at the thought of caroling, gingerbread cookies, gently falling snow, and the age-old tradition of children posing with Santa Claus for an endearing photo. Imgur user grumpypunkcat, however, puts a hilarious twist on that holiday ritual with Santa Face Swap, a collection of photos in which old Saint Nick's jolly face is swapped with that of the young child sitting on his lap.
The results are both amusing and slightly disturbing. Santa is transformed into a wide-eyed, bearded baby who often looks like he's on the verge of tears. Perched on his lap is a tiny, terrifying figure with spectacles and a wrinkled face that's aged 60 years. Nothing says “happy holidays” like a good ol' face swap!
