Average Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus

Cozying up on the couch to watch Christmas movies will always be one of our favorite holiday traditions. We love the uplifting messages behind all of the plot lines and the festive spirit the films put us in. Spending a chilly December night indoors curled up under a blanket, fireplace blazing, Christmas tree lights twinkling, and eating cookies while watching holiday movie re-runs sounds like a dream.

In fact, we watch so many Christmas movies that we became curious if there was a typical face of Santa Claus, our favorite holiday character. Do actors who play Santa have a lot of similarities in their faces? What makes an actor look like a believable Father Christmas? We decided to take a look at some of the most memorable Saint Nick’s throughout film history and morph their faces to find what the average face looks like. We combined the faces of the following actors to create the compilation above:

Edward Asner (Elf)
Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street)
Tim Allen (The Santa Clause)
Paul Giamatti (Fred Claus)
Jim Belushi (Jingle All the Way)
Leslie Nielson (Santa Who?)
Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa)
Richard Reihle (The Search for Santa Paws)
Douge Kaye (Santa’s Bootcamp)

Here’s what it looks like morphing from one actor to the next:

Santa Claus
Of course, we couldn’t create the Santa mash-up without also seeing the average face of his lovely wife, Mrs. Claus. For this face morph we combined the faces of the following actresses:

Mira Sorvino (Finding Mrs. Claus)
Angela Lansbury (Mrs. Claus)
Judy Cornwell (Santa Claus)
Elizabeth Mitchell (The Santa Clause 2)
Julie Benz (Charming Christmas)
Doris Rich (Santa Claus Conquers the Martians)
June Lockhart (The Night They Saved Christmas)
Miranda Richardson (Fred Claus)

Mrs. Claus
As expected, the average Santa face turned out to be warm and jolly while Mrs. Claus’ average face reminded us of a kind, sweet grandmother.

The friendly features of these beloved holiday characters are meant to bring a smile to your face. In the words of Santa, “Ho, ho ho, and Merry Christmas!”
