Here's All The Photos We Could Find Of World Leaders Chilling With Santa Claus

Wow guys, get in the spirit of the season more.

As Christmas barrels toward us like an out-of-control, one-horse open sleigh, we here at BuzzFeed World came across this delightful photo of France's president, Emmanuel Macron, going around with Santa Claus meeting children.

"What a delightful picture!" we thought to ourselves. "Everyone loves Santa! And politicians know that everyone loves Santa. This is some prime Christmas content!"


(Have you seen more skeptical children, by the way? That beard is fooling NOBODY.)


We're pretty sure hackers haven't stolen Father Frost's naughty/nice list, but who can even say.

*We know that there's a whole thing where the actual saint morphed into the Santa we know and demand homage from yearly, but tbh we're just wishing she'd been pictured with the Krampus.

But you know who freaking loves Santa? US presidents. Both Barack Obama and George W. Bush had a ton of photos with Big Red over the years.

Which makes sense, because the US literally invented the modern idea of Santa Claus. But, c'mon, Rest of the World. It's Christmas.
