It’s that time of year again, time to dress up the kids in their Christmas best, stand in a long line and pay way too much money for what generally is a not-so-great Santa picture (or is that just me?)
In the past, I’ve directed you to some of the best Santas out there; I’ve also showed you the Jolly Old Elves to avoid. Unfortunately, this year there seem to be more Bad Santas than ever. If you still haven’t visited your shopping mall’s Saint Nick, take my advice and stay the hell away from these guys:

>THANKS for the best laugh I’ve had in I-don’t-know-how-long!
>Oh Dear God this is side-splitting funny!!!The baby in St. Tropez Santa’s lap is killing me. Some of these Santas are so freakin creepy. No wonder kids are terrified. I need to check your list. We’re in Nashvegas and going to visit the big elf tomorrow.Thanks!
>I wonder sometimes about the contradictions we teach our kids. “Don’t talk to strangers, honey!” But then we FORCE kids to not only talk to a stranger, but sit on his lap, whisper in his ear, and SMILE. There’s got to be something Freudian in that. Is it any wonder that so many kids are horrified? I laughed and laughed at the pictures and captions you posted. Too funny! Are there any successful santa pictures out there?
>OMW!! That is soo funny! I soo needed that laugh today… *S*
>I needed that laugh. Thank you.

>yikes! yet even more photographic support for my decision not to traumatize my boys by making them sit on some dress-up stranger’s lap so we can pay through our noses for an awful picture!
>Oh Lindsey -Too hilarious.I think I just snorted coffee through my nose!This is going on my Linkapalooza tomorrow!
>Santa was at the restaurant we ate at the other night, and since I don’t think most people knew he was going to be there, the place was rather empty.At one point during our meal, we laughed as we heard him singing … “Ho ho ho, one more hour to go, ho ho ho.”
>I love the Santa pictures, thanks for the laugh.Luckily, Santa visits our local library each year so we can get all the bad pictures we want for free.
>Hahahaha. OW, I split something. My favorite’s ritalin Santa too. You make me really glad I decided to skip the whole Santa thing with my kids.
>OMG where did you get all those Santa pic’s? LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What a scary bunch of freaks!
>Frack that was funny! If you’re preparing your list for next year, feel free to have a go at my scary Santa — do the eyebrows say escaped convict or what?http://media.bloggingbaby.com/2007/12/02/the-santa-clause/
