"Santa With A Face Mask" Should Be This Year's Official Christmas Ornament

Whether it was a canceled Easter egg hunt or a July 4th spent watching virtual fireworks, every holiday we've celebrated since the beginning of the pandemic has been... not quite the same. But Santa Claus is determined to stop the coronavirus from crushing children's Christmas dreams — that's why this adorable Santa wearing a face mask ornament is the perfect trinket for what might be a very different sort of holiday season.

While Santa might be a jolly ol’ fellow, he’s also a responsible adult. This super cute "Santa In 2020 Ornament" ($24.00) lets everyone know that even at the North Pole, they take social distancing seriously. Mr. C. knows that he’s in the highest risk group, since he’s a senior citizen (never mind his jelly belly).

Made from PVC, this shiny St. Nick has sparkly glitter on the furry part of his cap as well as on his long curly locks. His smiling eyes show that he’s happy wearing the face mask and understands that he needs to wear one in order to keep all of the elves (and of course, Mrs. Claus) safe as he travels with his reindeer around the world delivering presents to all the good little boys and girls.

Otherwise, it’s coal in the stocking for them.
