Crying With Santa: A Photo Gallery
Let’s face it – Santa is scary. Big fat old guy with a white beard and a red coat who wants you to sit on his lap and tell him what you want. Then comes into your house in the middle of the night and eats your “cookies.” The dude is freaky. And yet every year hundreds of parents force their kids to the mall and subject themselves to screaming and crying toddlers just so they can have these cherished moments of torture captured on film.
Well the jokes on you Mom and Dad, because this is what prosecutors like to call “Exhibit A” when 20 years go by and little Kevin is combing through a retirement village with a black trench coat and an AK picking off anyone who looks like Jerry Garcia…. Anyhoo! Seeing kids cry with Santa is probably one of my favorite holiday pastimes. And God bless the internets because it seems that I’m not the only one. After combing through hundreds of screaming kid photos, here are some of the ones that made me laugh. Special thanks has to go to The South Florida Sun-Sentinal who seems to be leading the charge in this delightful new holiday tradition.
