I was wondering if anyone else dreaded going to see Santa as a child worse than a dead man walking? I was petrified of going to sit on someone's lap that I didnt know and would sit there and say nothing with eyes as big as saucers. My dear brother would just open up and let out the siren howl. Needless to say all of our Christmas photos with Santa look scared. I can still feel the butterflies. How many parents are unaware of the trauma of pictures with Santa? I have one of me with Santa on my computer right now looking big eyed and wary.
