13 Times Dads Were Cooler Than Santa on Christmas


They don’t travel around the whole world in 24 hours, nor do they go down your chimney or through your window, but they certainly can be more magical than Santa Clause during the holidays (and all year round)!

Bright Side knows how hard it is to be a parent so we want to share 13 stories about dads who went beyond everyone’s expectations during Christmas. Don’t miss the bonus at the end of the article!

1. A different Elf on the Shelf

2. “My dad is an OB/GYN and was on-call for Christmas. This is how he went to visit patients this morning.”

3. “My dad made my mom hold his cape for his Christmas jammies pic.”

4. “Dad dressed up even though I’m 23 and his youngest kid is 20.”

5. “Neither of my kids would sit on Santa’s lap, so I did. Santa was not amused.”
