I was writing my Gingerbread House Party post when I came across these old photos from the long gone Santa’s Village theme parks in California (that I would see the commercial for on television all the time but never got to go to. :( Why mom and dad, why?! MEAN

First I found this set of photos quite endearing and cute!

Then I pulled out my magnifying glass (which I keep in arm’s reach ’cause you just never know what you may stumble upon) and found some frightening things in these pictures..FOR INSTANCE:

And I love clowns but this picture is pretty creepy, even for me!

oh god no

Look at that cray bitch hating in the back! This looks like it could have some sort of Lifetime movie plot…The Scandal at Santa’s Village.

There’s that bunny again. Ugh. Look at him sitting on that pole, having a grand ol’ time. What the F is this place?? A place I wish to go…that’s what.

I’m so mad we don’t have this kind of amusement park anymore.

Here’s the commercial I was talking about. This would play on television so often, I had it memorized. It’s been YEARS since I’ve seen this and watching it felt like I went back in time. I still know the words!

Did any of you California kids ever go to Santa’s Village? What was it like? PS. I HATECHU FYI

Edit: I just got my magnifying glass out again and found at least three more creepy things! How bout you? Take out your monocle and look closely at this shit like an issue of Highlights and tell me “what’s wrong!”
