For this year’s holiday reader contest, we asked our readers to submit their best “scared of Santa” photos. The response we received was overwhelming. Over 250 entries poured into our inbox, each picture more terrifying (and hilarious) than the one before. With our work cut out for us, we pored over the entries, which ranged in date from 1951 to 2013. After much deliberation, we’ve settled on a handful of favorites. For your holiday enjoyment, here they are.
