While many grown-ups enter turbo mode in December, preparing for holiday parties, presents and food -- it's really about one thing for our little ones: Santa!
But the prospect of finally meeting the big guy after a whole year of being good is just a little overwhelming for some tykes.
We here at Patch understand, and we want to celebrate your little ones anyway in what we hope will be a fun, light-hearted project we call 'Santa Tantrums.'
Have a photo of your little one having a meltdown after finally getting to sit on Santa's lap? Add it to our collection here on this story file. Or email your photo to Lauren Padgett at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a little background on the photo you submit (where you met Santa, was it their first time, etc.), and I'll add it to our collection.
If your child is now a too-cool-for-you teen (or older!) but you have an awfully cute picture of them with Santa years ago, we think vintage shots are awesome too!
