Scary Santas

12/04/2013 - 12 comments

Do you have a child who is or was afraid of Santa? It’s hard for us to fathom that kids would be afraid of a jolly man who brings them gifts, yet many of them are.

  • They won’t go near him.
  • They cry or scream from his lap.
  • They won’t speak to him.
  • They are traumatized after walking past him in the mall.

Despite our best efforts to understand and soothe, their fear still remains.

And maybe it is for good reason.

Take a look at some scary Santas that may provide justification for their fears.

    My daughter is a bit freaked by Santa. I hate clowns, so maybe it’s a family trait..lol

    LOL! This actually made me laugh looking at some of these pictures! The looks on some of these kids faces are priceless! I’d look like that too if I had to sit on these laps!

    I was always afraid of Santa. I remember being like 4 years old and promising my mom that would be the year I’d sit on Santa’s lap. We’d stand in line at Marshall Field’s in downtown Chicago and I’d still be promising her all the way to the front of the line before I’d freak and scream. After that my brother would babysit me while my parents went Christmas shopping and I made my mom take my list with her so SHE could give it to Santa for me.

    After I was in high school a friend and I did see Santa at the local mall and that was the first time I sat on Santa’s lap.

      I don’t remember ever being afraid of Santa, I’ll have to ask my mom.

      I am always afraid that bad Santas will ruin the magic for my kids.

    OMG, they either look like the devil, pedophiles, or they’re drunk.
    I’d be scared to walk near them, let alone sit on any of their Laps.

    Eeek, I would be scared of most of those – and I’m an adult.
