9780062204585: Scared of Santa: Scenes of Terror in Toyland

He's huge and hairy and hulking.
He dresses in strange furry clothing.
He sneaks into people's homes at night.
Who wouldn't be afraid of . . . Santa Claus ?!?

Nothing says Christmas quite like innocent children shrieking with terror as a stranger dressed in red drags them kicking and screaming onto his lap. Now this time-honored rite of passage is celebrated with a hilarious collection of more than two hundred and fifty priceless photos of kids' traumatic trips to Santa's workshop. Scared of Santa offers a cornucopia of photographic funnies—from sixty-year-old family heirlooms to last year's howlers—along with delightful commentary on those unforgettable childhood visits to scary ol' Saint Nick.

About the Author:

Denise Joyce is a longtime editor for the Chicago Tribune and has the gold watch to prove it. She and her husband have two grown children; their behavior supports the theory that one out of every two children is terrified of Santa—and clowns.



Nancy Watkins is a Chicago Tribune features editor and writer who is much too good a mom to have ever forced her son, now 11, to sit on Santa's lap.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Nothing says Christmas like innocent children shrieking with terror as a hulking red stranger drags them onto his lap. For many kids, a frightening visit with Santa is a rite of passage. And luckily, our loved ones have captured those precious Christmas moments on film to taunt us for years to come. Denise Joyce and Nancy Watkins, editors of the Chicago Tribune s weekly Q section, have picked up a few insights among their archives. Did you know that twin boys are much more likely to cry than twin girls? Or, that if you put an infant in a cheery Santa hat, you are almost guaranteed high-decibel wails? Or, that there are Santas who look so creepy that you wouldn t want to sit on their laps - even if you were promised exactly what you asked for? With over 250 never-before-seen reader - submitted photos - from 60-year-old heirlooms to last year s howlers - and priceless commentary, this delightful stocking stuffer is guaranteed to make you laugh.
