Santa Claus – or Father Christmas, Père Noël, Kris Kringle, Weihnachtsmann, Babbo Natale or whatever you prefer to call him – works very hard over December. In the run up to December 25, he’s constantly keeping an eye on his elves’ gift production line, drawing up plans for the most efficient route across the world and making sure his reindeer are in peak physical condition for their shift on Christmas Eve. 

There must be so much to think about actually. He has to packing the sleigh with all those presents and find time to enjoy a light lunch before he sets off – this is so he has room for all those cookies and glasses and milk we leave out for him!

Even though he’s a to-ho-ho-ho-tal legend, it doesn’t mean we can’t tell a few silly Xmas jokes about him and his reindeer squad, does it? 

We get very excited in the run-up to Christmas at Beano and nothing says festive fun like these seriously funny Santa jokes – and we know Yule love them too!
