Introduction: Scared of Santa Scared of Santa

Nothing says Happy Holidays like a photo of sweet little toddlers screaming at Santa. A couple of years ago, the Chicago Tribune asked readers to send in their "Scared of Santa" photos. Those photos are included here, as well as additional photos sent in by SouthFlorida.com, Sun-Sentinel.com and Chicago Tribune readers in subsequent years. Enjoy!

A first glimpse: No one, not even the office Grinches, failed to laugh at this shot from Valerie Miller of Lansing, who captured now-22-year-old daughter Amie�s first glimpse of St. Nick--artfully rendered in plastic. It�s the first in a series that Miller says she torments Amie with every year. Now this is a mom who knows what Christmas is all about.
