Santa Claus is arguably the mascot of the holiday season — the one we were all eagerly waiting for on Christmas Eve when we were growing up. Even now that we're adults and know that jolly Saint Nick isn’t actually coming down our chimneys to leave us gifts, that doesn't stop us from loving the man in red and everything he stands for. Not only does he embody the merry spirit of the holidays, but the way he goes “ho, ho, ho” when he laughs and loves cookies and his reindeer more than anything, makes him sound like a real chill dude you would want to hang out with IRL. He’s someone you’d drink spirits with or sit around cracking holiday dad jokes with “father Christmas” himself. So, when it comes time to share your favorite holiday moments online, you’ll want to put a smile on your friends’ faces with these 75 Santa puns for Instagram.
