Pictures of Children Frightened By Santa Claus

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.

  1. I'm still afraid of Santa Claus. Some big fat dude in a red velvet suit with sparkles? and fringes? And then on top of that this guy has on some black boots with a pirates buckle on them?

    Either he's a pedophile,a psycho, or just a plain nut. Yeah i don't mess with Santa.
