Where does 🤶 - Mrs Claus emoji come from?


While there are variations across the platforms, the Mrs. Claus emoji shows a smiling, white-haired woman with glasses and a red bonnet. On Facebook, Apple, and Google, details like wrinkles and shadows lend her a more realistic appearance while Samsung gives her rosy cheeks.

While her husband Santa Claus has been a part of Unicode since 2010, Mrs. Claus was added by the consortium in 2016 along with a group of other emoji responding to pressure about gender parity in emoji-land. Since she was added after Unicode started offering a greater spectrum of skin tones, Mrs. Claus is available in a range of colors too.
