PHOTOS: Kids lose their minds when confronted with Santa

The best photos of kids scared of Santa

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It's the most wonderful time of the year unless you happen to be a little kid who's afraid of Santa.

While some little girls and boys can't wait to head to the mall and sit on the big guy's lap and share their Christmas lists, other kids shriek at the very sight of the jolly old elf.

We asked viewers for some of their best pics of kids not exactly enjoying their time with Santa, and some of the submissions are just adorable.

Maybe these kids are traumatized now, but it's something they'll probably get a giggle out of when they're older.
