If you have kids, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve experienced the joy (or sheer terror if you ask our toddlers) that are Santa photos.

This year most of Australia experienced a different type of Santa visit, one that involved zero lap-sitting or Claus-cuddling. Our toddlers let out a collective sigh of relief – no need to sit on some rando’s lap! Hooray!

And us parents? Well, we made the most of it. We recently asked our Mum Central readers to share their socially distanced Santa photos 2020-edition and boy, did you deliver the goods!

We’ve collected our very favourite ones that get an A for Awesome! So clever, so creative, and such a good reminder of the absolute sh*tstorm that was 2020.

Let the parade of socially distanced Santa photos 2020 commence.
