[Flashback Friday] 5.29- Santa Skulls

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Tatman, Azurafae, and myself, Citizen Agent, are taking turns reflecting on 17 of our personal favorite skulls from the previous four years of postings. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

Joanne Dhody of Design Unlimited made these patches for everyone on staff at the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia back in 2009

Longtime fan of Skull -A-Day, Larry Pearson sent us his Holiday wishes also in 2009.

Tatman’s, wife was in the Skullmas spirit as she made a Santa Skull sugar cookie on a snowy day back in 2009 to wish all a Happy Skullidays .

And to wrap up the skulliday season 2010, John Angelo spotted this sneaky simulacra. "This is a decorative coaster/holder my mother-in-law had at her house. It depicts Santa's jolly head, but when I saw it reversed, all I could see was a skull."

Slay Bells C says:

In doing today’s flashback I was surprised to find that we have a very limited offering of Santa Skulls in our growing archives. However, what we lack in Quanity we make up for in Quality. Thank you all for allowing us to share these wonderful creations/find once again to enjoy as we rest up for the next holiday ahead. As always, if anyone finds themselves inspired to make a santa skull or anyother holiday related skull please remember to send it in we love to share them.

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here. During year 4.0 the editors had their chance to countdown their favorites Azurafae HERE, Citizen Agent HERE, and Tatman HERE.
