The Fake Santas Of Los Angeles

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

In light of the news that hunky Santa will no longer be gracing the waxed floors of the Beverly Center please enjoy this round-up of other poser Clauses. Like the seven dwarfs of Disney fame, these Santas enjoy their own name distinctions: Yodaclaus, Plasticclaus, Deadclaus, Creepyclaus, Sexyclaus, Kermieclaus and, of course, Barfyclaus. To see Larry Kingclaus, you'll need to go to the Hollywood Christmas Parade.
