Best Santa Claus Snapchat Lenses & Filters

Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps among teenagers. “A new type of camera”, it allows you to share almost everything—from pictures to videos with the press of a button. The best part? You can customize them to your heart’s desire. If anything, that’s what makes it so fun!

Unlike other camera apps, the “snaps” that you take aren’t permanent either; whatever you send will be deleted as soon as it’s viewed. In other words, you won’t have to worry about your pictures or videos surfacing somewhere on the internet.

Using Snapchat Filters

Snapchat filters are one of the app’s main features. Graphical overlays, they can be used to customize your snaps. For example, you can use them to alter your appearance or change the background. Some even come with sound effects! At the end of the day, it all depends on the filter that you’re using.

And that brings us to our next point—there are many filters that you can choose from. After all, anyone can make their own and share them on the app.

Santa Claus Snapchat Lens Codes

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there are many Christmas-themed effects. After all, it is one of the biggest holidays of the year. In fact, that’s what we’ll be sharing in this post! More specifically, we’ll be sharing some filters that feature Santa Claus. What better way to celebrate than with St. Nick, right?

Best Santa Claus Countdown Lenses & Filters For 2020

Anyway, here they are. Which one will you be choosing for your snap?

1. Christmas Santa Claus Snapchat Filter

This snap filter will turn you into none other than Santa himself! Interested? Want to know what you’d look like? Then scan the snapcode. The next thing you know, your face will appear on the screen. Instead of your usual hairdo, however, you’ll have a thick white mane. That’s not all, you’ll also have a mustache and beard; even your eyebrows will be thick and bushy! After all, this is Santa Claus that we’re talking about.

Given that, it’s a no-brainer that you’ll be wearing a Santa hat. And if you look closely, you’ll see that snow will also be falling from the sky! How fitting, right? But wait, there’s more. You see, there will be a festive message at the bottom of the screen as well, although you can’t see it in the example that we’ve posted.

2. Dancing Santa Claus Snapchat Filter

Have you ever seen Santa Claus dance? Because he’s actually a pretty good dancer. And guess what? That’s what you’ll turn into with this filter! That’s right, scan the snapcode and you’ll transform into Santa himself. The next thing you know, he will pop up on the screen with his white beard and red suit!

Unlike other filters, however, your face won’t come up right away. Instead, you have to choose a picture to use from your camera roll. So if you wanted to, you could put your friend’s face on Santa as well! In the end, it should look something like the screenshot above. And since you’ll be dancing, you might want to record a video!

3. Derpy Santa Snapchat Lens

This filter will turn you into a “unique” version of Santa Claus. Trust me, you’ve probably never seen anything like it. For those who are interested, scan the yellow snapcode. The next thing you know, your camera will turn into selfie mode. In other words, you should see your face on the screen!

Not only will you be wearing a Santa hat but you’ll also have a thick grey beard on your chin, as well as a mustache. The highlight, though, has to be your eyes. They’ll be big and derby, just like the screenshot that we’ve posted above. Sure, it’s not a realistic representation of Santa but it’s still cool. If anything, it will definitely give your friends a few laughs!

4. Santa Head Snapchat Filter

For those who want to dress up as Santa, check out this filter! It’ll literally replace your head with the jolly fella’s. All you have to do is scan the snapcode—the filter will work its magic on its own. Within seconds, you’ll be staring at Santa Claus himself on the screen!

As you can see from the example, the effect’s quite “realistic.” You’ll have his hat, glasses, beard, moustache and everything. If anything, you won’t be able to see your own face at all, which is kind of the point. And what’s cool about it is that it’ll mirror your mouth movements! Now all you’re missing is the red suit!

5. Hipster Santa Claus Snapchat Filter

Don’t expect to turn into an old man with this filter. Cause it’ll turn you into a hipster Santa Claus! Yes, that’s a thing. If you’re interested in using it for a snap, scan the snapcode. The effect will activate shortly afterward and you won’t be able to miss it. For one thing, there will be a pair of shades on your face.

That’s not all, you’ll also have tiny sticker-like things on your skin. And while the filter will give you facial hair, it won’t be white. Instead, it’ll be a rich shade of red. You can see what it looks like in the example that we’ve included above. What do you think? Does it give off a hipster vibe or what?

6. Santa Dance Snapchat Lens

This snap filter won’t just add Santa to your snap, it’ll add his reindeer friends too! Just scan the snapcode and they’ll come up on your screen. And can you guess what they’ll be doing? That’s right, they’ll be breaking out in dance! Who knew that reindeer could dance like that, right?

If you want, you can also move them around on the screen. Just drag the trio with your fingers—they’ll go wherever you want them to go! Likewise, you can zoom in and zoom out. The only thing is that you have to be using the rear camera, otherwise, they won’t show up!

7. Santa Cloudy Beard Snapchat Filter

This filter won’t dress you up as Santa per se, but it will give you one of his distinctive features—his beard. Instead of hair, however, it’ll be made of clouds! Curious to know how that works? Then scan the snapcode and see for yourself!

The “beard” will come up as soon as you do that. And you can’t tell from the example, but it’ll actually be “moving” in the wind. Also, the filter will add a frame to your snap! Not just any frame, but a dynamic one with lots of snowflakes. You can kind of see them coming down in the example that we’ve included with the snapcode.

8. Santa Christmas Countdown Snapchat Lens

How many days are there left until Christmas? Find out with this filter! All you have to do is scan the snapcode and a countdown will appear on your snap. That’s not all, it’ll “dress you up” as well. Take a look at the image that we’ve posted. See that? You’ll be wearing a hat and a pair of glasses.

And who’s that on the glasses? Why yes, it’s Santa Claus! You might have to zoom in a bit but he’s definitely there. On top of all that, the filter will give your snap a festive, dynamic background. Given all that, it’s probably best to hold the shutter button and take a snap video!

9. Bald Santa Claus Snapchat Filter

This filter is more of a doodle than anything. Don’t let that turn you off, though. If anything, it’ll make for a hilarious snap! Anyway, if you’re interested, point your camera at the snapcode. The next thing you know, a bald figure will come up on the screen. Does he look familiar at all? Cause yup, he’s Santa! Or at least, he’s supposed to be anyway.

Sure, his eyes might be small and he might not have any hair on his head, but he’ll still have his signature beard! If you look closely, you’ll also notice that he’s wearing a red suit and hat. There’s even a hand drawn background and everything!

10. Days Until Christmas Snapcode

This snap filter is cool in that it’ll turn you into Santa Claus and it’ll tell you the number of days left until Christmas! Want to see what the effect is like? If so, scan the snapcode—it’ll work its magic within a matter of seconds! Before you know it, you’ll be wearing a 2D Santa hat on your head. That’s not all, you’ll have a beard and mustache as well, and they too will be in 2D!

And what’s that? Even your hair will be white! As expected from Santa Claus. Now you’re probably wondering, “what about the countdown?”. For that, take a look at the bottom of the screen; you should see it in red and green letters. The way we cropped the image, you just can’t see it in the example! 

11. Merry Christmas Snapchat Filter

Want to take a selfie with a Santa hat? Then check out this lens. As soon as it’s activated, one will appear on your head! You won’t have to do anything special except look at the camera. 

That’s not the only thing that it will do either. See the example that we’ve posted? Yup, that’s snow that’s coming down from the sky and you will be able to see it fall down. If anything, that’s another reason to take a video with the filter. I mean, you can use it for a selfie, but then you won’t be able to make the most out of it!
