Santa Claus Emoji

Santa Claus, known in some countries as Father Christmas, brings joy to children at Christmasย 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 originย to Santa Claus. 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.

Copy to clipboard

Also Known As

๐ŸŽ… Saint Nicholas

๐ŸŽ… Santa Claus

๐ŸŽ… Sinterklaas

Unicode Name

๐ŸŽ… Father Christmas


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.
