As we all know, Christmas is probably one of the most stressful times of the year. For weeks leading up to Christmas eve, you've been shopping, wrapping, and hiding all your purchased gifts in every nook and cranny of your house, constantly worrying that one of your recipients — we're looking at you, kids — will discover the awesome gift that you worked so hard to score. So to take the edge off of this crazy time, here are some hilarious Santa memes that are nothing short of appropriate for this time of year.
From a hipster Santa who has some unexpected expectations of what to find when he comes down that chimney, to the St. Nick who had a little bit too much fun at the holiday office party, chances are you know a real life version of one of these funny Santa Memes. I mean, is it nuts to say that these silly pictures can actually bring people together? And isn't that what the holidays are all about? It's about learning that your distant cousin has the same sense of humor as you, and finding joy in one of the most hectic, stressful holidays of all. That is the real magic of Christmas. Oh right and the birth of Jesus Christ — how could I forget?
So before you start freaking out about the holidays and what to buy your weirdo relatives, check out these funny Santa Memes that, let's be honest, pretty much sum up your feelings towards St. Nick perfectly.
1Reality Check Santa
Santa has a point. Dance classes are expensive! Blame it St. Nick if your kids don't get every single item checked off their Christmas list this year.
If only he were the only one judging us all year long.
3Off The Clock Santa
No one likes working late and that includes this grumpy Santa.
Apparently this dog got the best Christmas gift ever.
Who says Mrs. Claws couldn't be a cat? Also, love a good pun.
Santa may get all the credit but it's MY bank account that's affected.
7Internet Trolling Santa
Looks like we know how Santa spends his time during the off season.
8Santa, The Academic
Sometimes Santa knows what's best for you, even if you don't ask for it.
You do realize that one day you'll have to explain to the kids who's been guzzling up the milk and cookies all these years, right?
Hipster Santa sounds like my kind of Santa.
It's okay Santa, we've all been there.
If I was an elf I'd be pissed.
Shouldn't eat too many cookies or you'll get a tummy ache.
Keep practicing those mantras, St. Nick.
15Oh No You Didn't Santa
He's watching you all year.
From the outside, this is hilarious, but imagine being the poor kid whose bedroom he's facing.
Yeah, don't be a Grinch.
