Santa is scary November 30, 2011

Were your kids good all year, only to be added to the naughty list after making a scene trying to take a picture at the mall?

Hmmm, red suit, monitors your naughty activities, thinly veiled anagram of a name, could it be...(assumes Church Lady voice)...Satan?

I think it's odd that we teach our kids not to lie, but then we feed them Santa, the tooth fairy, and the Easter Bunny, because we need someone to take the blame off of ourselves when they don't get everything they want for "insert consumerist holiday here".

Instead we should be giving them a nice dose of reality about greed, disappointment, and lowering their expectations.

Santa is weird. You tell kids not to take candy from strangers, and beware of bad people, then you send them off to sit on a strange man's lap and whisper what they want in his ear. Creepy... no wonder they scream bloody murder.

Halloween too.. don't take candy from.. oh never mind.

Oh for goodness sake. Little kids can cry like this when you hand them to grandma. As consumer1 says, it's just stranger fear. And I've never seen a parent "laugh their kiesters off" when their kid cries. You grab them and hug them and let them know they're safe.

Personally, I never took my kid to see "Santa" because that in and of itself is just weird.

simply put, it is stanger fear. The fact that the stranger is wearing a costume has nothing to do with the fear the children are expressing. Add to that however, the child see's their mother and father standing back and laughing their kiester's off, that is where the real trauma comes from.

Why does anyone think this is funny or even think they should post pictures of frightened children? Ugh!
