Are you the proud owner of a Santa hat? If you are not the lucky one mentioned above, don’t worry. There are plenty of other folks out there who have a Santa hat they can proudly show off. And these aren’t just your run-of-the-mill “jolly” Santas, they’re also well-meaning “silly” Santas (as well as many others who think they resemble Santa Claus) who just happen to be visiting and having a good time.
This brings us to the question of where do you put your Santa hat? Some people hang theirs on their head, while others like to wear them around the house. But which direction is best for you?
If you really like your Santa hat, by all means, display it proudly. It’s a personal thing, after all, and you can choose to do with it as you wish. But there are safety and security considerations to think about here, too. Santa is a big deal in many families, and you want people to feel like they can trust you when you’re wearing that hat.
Santa hats for pictures may not be the first thing people think of when you mention “head gear.” But the truth is that a Santa hat is a necessary accessory for any kind of headgear. And a Santa hat is absolutely indispensable when it comes to hats for pictures. You just can’t take any chances when it comes to protecting your face from the sun. Plus, the hat will protect you from any twits, kisses or scratches your fellow party guests (or, God forbid, the kids) might aim at you.
Another safety issue is that you should make sure that the Santa hat you choose fits you snugly. Too tight, and it won’t hang down over your eyes. Too loose, and it’ll be a choking hazard. That’s why it’s important that your Santa hat for pictures is adjustable. You can make it small for a child or large for an adult.
And don’t neglect protection when you get your Santa hat for pictures. You don’t want the sun’s glare to melt your face into the hat. That would just ruin the look, even if the heat outside isn’t that bad. Also, the hat has to be lightweight enough so that it doesn’t feel like your face is being crushed by the weight of the Santa hat on your head. That could create a tear, and would probably be distracting.
Finally, you’ll want the hat to remain visible through all the activities going on outside. It should stay on your head, but it shouldn’t obscure your face or expressions. Some hats have hoods that can be pulled back, but this often makes them hard to put on quickly when needed. So keep this in mind when choosing a hat. The Santa hats for pictures I’ve seen all have removable hoods or are lined with fleece for maximum visual protection.
Your Santa hat for pictures needs to be sturdy and comfortable. They usually come in a white color. But if you’re wearing a black hat, that’s perfectly fine too. Think about what Santa Claus will be getting up to when he’s standing beside you. Be sure to choose a hat that will give your face protection from the bright glare of the approaching sun. Also, make sure the hat is large enough to cover your head without cramping it up.
Santa hats for pictures should also be appropriate for the season in which you’ll be wearing it. Think about what Santa is doing in your home during Christmas, and then select a hat according to what he’s doing. For example, in the movies Santa will be shown wearing a Christmas tree hat, but on real Santa there’s no need for a Christmas hat. You’ll be surprised at how realistic some Santa hats look!
If you’re wearing a Santa hat for pictures, you don’t have to limit yourself to traditional red and green colors. Try a black or white hat with a white beard. These look great with the Christmas colors and they’re fun to wear, too.
But if you really want to stand out this Christmas, consider purchasing a Santa hat adorned with flashing lights and bells or stars. You’ll be the most adorable in the room when you do this. And the kids will absolutely love having a Santa hat like this at their Christmas party. So go ahead and get one today!
