πŸŽ… Father Christmas

Santa Claus, known in some countries as Father Christmas, brings joy to children at Christmas time. Married to Mrs Claus.

The Santa emoji had a frown on Android 4.4, which was resolved in Android 5.0 after a bug report was filed. Father Christmas now smiles in the current version of Android.

The Father Christmas emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010. Copy and paste this emoji using the text field below:

The Father Christmas emoji supports skin tone modifiers. A yellow (or other non-human) skin tone should be shown by default, unless an emoji modifier is applied.

Platforms without support for emoji modifiers display a missing symbol character (box with a cross, alien, or question mark in it) next to any modified emoji.
