32 Santa Photos That Did NOT Go As Planned

Do these kids not know Santa brings presents??

While many kids look forward to their one-on-one time with Santa, some would just rather not. So instead of a nice photo with Kris Kringle, many parents walk away with photos of their kids screaming, crying, running away, or just making a random silly face with Santa.

We asked the HuffPost Parents community to share photos of their kids' less than picture-perfect moments with Santa this year. Let's just say the results did not disappoint.
