Mutilated Undead Decorations

Zombie Santa Ornaments Immortalizes the Ill Fate of Father Christmas

— December 5, 2012 — Special
The zombie Santa ornaments show the jolly old fellow in a different light this holiday season.

Santa Claus is writhing in pain this Christmas as he is close to being possessed by the undead. Most likely caused by delivering presents to a house that he mistook for having well-behaved children, Father Christmas has been attacked to the point of gory bloodshed with his shoulder ripped open and blood trickling down his dusty white beard. Immortalized in a moment of painful but potential escape, the zombie Santa ornaments depict St. Nick's final attempt at survival as he wedges his blubbery belly out of the undead family's chimney. People will find out of the jolly soul survived his viscous attack if the genuinely well-behaved children get any presents this Christmas this year.
