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 smiles in the current version of Android.

Note: Father Christmas has a different origin to Santa Claus but both are represented by this single emoji.

Santa Claus was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name โ€œFather Christmasโ€ and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
