Some kids love the man in red, others not so much. For your holiday enjoyment, we've rounded up some hilarious holiday photos of horrified kids who'd rather be anywhere other than on Santa's lap.
If you have a photo of your child on Santa's lap we'd love to add it to our gallery - just email us the picture on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to our gallery. Alternatively you can post it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ivillagesanta and we'll take it from there. (Don't worry - your child does not have to look petrified)
