Reminder: We Want To See Your Photos Of Kids Who Hate Hanging With Santa Claus

ahhhhmirandaAs the doors on the advent calendar open one by one, bringing us closer to Christmas, there’s still time for you to be part of our annual Consumerist holiday celebration. And by celebration, we mean, celebrating the effect the mall Santa Claus sometimes has on the younger set.

Once again, we’re opening up the tipline to submissions of either your kid visiting with Santa or other mall characters, or a disastrous visit from your own past, to share with Consumerist readers.

To send in your photos (the larger the better!), here’s how you go about it:

1. Attach it in email with the subject line SCARY SANTA 2015
2. Include your child’s name and age in the body of the email (or if it was you way back when, your name, age at the time, and the year the photo was taken) along with any fun anecdotes about the experience.
3. Send it to for us to enjoy, watermark and share on the site on Christmas Day.

Please note, you need to be the child’s parent or the subject of the photo for your photo submission to be published, or we’ll have to get permission directly from the parents if you’re someone’s uncle or aunt.
