Nothing says Christmas quite like innocent children shrieking with terror as a stranger dressed in red drags them kicking and screaming onto his lap. Now this time-honored rite of passage is celebrated with a hilarious collection of more than two hundred and fifty priceless photos of kids' traumatic trips to Santa's workshop. Scared of Santa offers a cornucopia of photographic funnies--from sixty-year-old family heirlooms to last year's howlers--along with delightful commentary on those unforgettable childhood visits to scary ol' Saint Nick.
