36 Santa Photos That Did NOT Go As Planned

Year after year, parents tote their kids to their local malls or department stores to pose for festive holiday photos with Santa. And time after time, many families end up with hilarious photos of their children screaming, crying, running away, or just making a random silly face with good ole Kris Kringle.

We asked the HuffPost Parents Facebook community to share photos of their kids' less than picture-perfect moments with Santa this year. The submissions show that sitting on the lap of a jolly white-bearded stranger is not a universally joyful experience. Go figure.
