Scared of Santa

Posted on

Not every child is jolly when St. Nick comes to town. In Scared of Santa (Harper, $9.95), the Chicago Tribune‘s Denise Joyce and Nancy Watkins pay tribute to the time-honored tradition of department-store Santas by compiling more than 250 captioned photos of traumatized children sitting on the big guy’s lap (some photos date back as far as 60 years). Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good fright!
