Magical Meltdowns

Why is anyone surprised when a child loses his or her cool when meeting Santa Claus for the first time? Sure, the old man takes requests, but he also has a beard so thick you can’t see most of his face, he wears a blood-red suit and he lives at the mall.

If you have a photo of a child, vintage or modern, who was none too happy to meet Santa, submit it to [email protected] Please include the child’s name, age and city, town or village. We’ll publish some of the best in our Dec. 23 issue and online.
