He's huge and hairy and hulking.
He dresses in strange furry clothing.
He sneaks into people's homes at night.
Who wouldn't be afraid of . . . Santa Claus?!?
In 2003 and 2006 edition of the Chicago Tribune, readers were asked to send them their favorite photos of children, frightened by Santa Claus. The result: hundreds of photos of children with tearful eyes and a gaily smiling Santa Claus. The best pictures from the collection - more than two hundred and fifty - were rounded up to make the book - Scared of Santa: Scenes of Terror in Toyland
Scared of Santa offers a cornucopia of photographic funnies—from sixty-year-old family heirlooms to last year's howlers—along with delightful commentary on those unforgettable childhood visits to scary ol' Saint Nick.
Here is a small of the hilarious pictures from the book.
