Sharing the image, Peter wrote: “Took this photo from my Kitchen window, Is that the Fat Happy blokes face in the Cloud. Ho ho ho.”
Social media users were quick to comment on the post, with many agreeing the image look just like Santa Claus but some saying it looked more like Homer Simpson.

Neil Thompson said: “Father Christmas is coming.”
Jamie Beale: “Looks more like Homer Simpson.”
The jovial snap follows tragic news that Christmas has been cancelled for many Britons after a new strain of fast-spreading coronavirus was found in Kent.
London and large areas of the south east have been put into a Tier 4 lockdown in a bid to control the new strain that is less understood.
The Government is meeting today to discuss new measures to counter it as prime minister Boris Johnson comes under pressure to introduce a national lockdown on Boxing Day.
