Melissa S. from Bedford, New Hampshire took her daughters to see Santa. She was standing only 3 feet away in this photo. Apparently, that was too far. Send us your bad Santa photos!

Lisa... satanic lie... get over yourself.... nothing wrong with a little harmless white lie such as santa, easter bunny, tooth fairy, etc... as long as you know the true meaning of all the holidays.... you can have both co-exist if people like you can keep from spoiling it... i bet you don't even like the lights.... Merry CHRISTmas to you.... i am sure plenty of people are praying for you.... on a brighter note... these pictures are so funny.... i do believe that some parents subject their kids to these photos simply because they themselves were subjected to them as children... break the cycle people... if your kid wants to get up there and have their picture made then by all means do it.. but please let them decide....., but again, thanks for the laugh!!!

It's interesting how we shield our children, yet traumatize them for tradition. Ages ago (over 20 years grrr :D), I did the same thing, without intention. I took a giant inflatable pumpkin to the toddler class I was teaching. One of the two year old's saw it pop over the cubbies and screamed like it was after him. I felt very bad. You have to admit, some of the expressions on those Santa faces state, "I never thought this is how it would be...This is the worst Seasonal Position I have ever had. I quit tonight!!"

I don't think anyone was trying to make Santa out as a a bad guy here…. by saying Bad Santa photos they mean the pictures themselves are bad.

I had a similar experience. Being a trusting mother, when I saw Santa at the mall, I placed my young daughter on his lap. However, it wasn't until I saw her reaction in the photo that I realized that this was not the real Santa, but an imposter. You can imagine my daughter's horror at the discovery that this particular Kris Kringle was a fake, and her deeply felt concerns for the safety and well-being of the true Santa.

Love your show. I have a special angel in my life, and would love to send her a vacation. She gave up her life to take care of Mom &Dad

These are always good for embarrassing your children later on in front of their girlfriends/boyfriends/husbands/wives.

The worst pictures were the 'Advertisements' that kept popping up during the slide...

PEOPLE! ITS CHRISTMAS! Get over yourselves! What does it matter if Santa is white, purple, blue, brown, yellow, black, silver or pink? It doesn't! Just be happy that at least these parents are trying to keep their kids in the Christmas Spirit by taking them out for the holidays. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!

My daughter is nearly 2. Last year she did fine, she didn't smile but just stared at him. This year she cried and clung to me and won't let me put her on his lap. We tried one with me holding her but sis didn't want to be near him. He was very nice and said we could come back as often as we want to try and get a good picture. He said one year there was a kid that came 9 times before he would sit on his lap.

Dear Ellen - LOVE your show!!! And you! I took my (then) 2 year old (she is 30-mumblemumblemumble now) to see Santa. We waited in line for over an hour. We got to Santa. She did not want to sit on his lap. I did not make her. On the way out to the parking lot, she started yelling (as only a redheaded 2 year old can) in crescendo: I wanna sit oN SANTA CLAUS'S LAP!! I wanna sit oN SANTA CLAUS'S LAP!!! Over and over. And over. All the way home till she passed out in the car seat. Thank you for your wonderful, good natured humor. You are funnier than just about anyone out there and do not have to be mean or ugly to do it. That is a blessing on us. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Sherri MacArthur
