It's something we've all seen at the mall or on friends' and family members' Christmas cards -- maybe it even happened to you or your own child.

Children wait all year for Santa to arrive and to tell him what they want under the tree on Christmas morning. You stand in long lines at the mall to meet the big guy. And then what happens when you finally get there? Little Johnny FREAKS OUT!

Sure, the whole experience may be a little traumatizing for your child and a headache for you, but the photos will always be hilarious. And that's why we want to see YOUR "Scared of Santa" photos! We're paying big money for them, too: The best one will win $1,000, as well as a sitting and portrait package from Doves Portrait Design valued at $500! Our second place winner will receive a $250 gift certificate to Doves, and third place will receive a $100 gift certificate.

Simply send us your photo using the form below -- make sure it's a photo you own and that you're OK with us posting it on our website -- to enter. We'll accept photos until noon on Friday, December 7.
