When meeting Santa goes wrong | Ballarat shares its photos

Visiting Santa sounds like such a joyous occasion for children. Apparently not.

In fact, it seems like getting acquainted with the man in the big red suit might be quite the acquired taste for the younger people of Ballarat.

Once our youngsters get to the age of about three-years-old, it seems to be a cheerful experience but before that it seems nothing but horror.

On Facebook on Monday we asked the people of Ballarat to share their funny photos with Santa.

The result was overwhelming.

From babies vomiting in Santa’s lap, to siblings engaging in screaming matches, there certainly is a bunch of funny Christmas photos.

But if there is one common theme among all the tears and screaming, it’s clear the fear of Santa doesn’t last long.

So if your child is scared of Santa this year, or the year before, rest assured it won’t be long until they are overcome with joy.
