How did your child react the first time they met Santa Claus?

My daughter met Santa for the first time Wednesday. It was amazing for her, and she was in such shock that she could barely say "Hello." Today she saw him again, and this time, hugged him endlessly, and didn't ask for a thing, even when he asked. "Um... A hug!" was all she wanted from Santa for Christmas.

What was the reaction your kids had when they first met Santa? What did he or she say when you first mentioned the man in red?

  • After last year we expected a screaming fit from DS,2, and had warned DS,11, that it was his job just to smile no matter what so we could get some kind of picture. Well, the little booger runs up climbs into Santa's lap and happily declared," I want a truck!" We all stood there with our mouths open and then he tells his brother, "Come on Bubby, make a cheese!" and he starts smiling like the ham he is. LOL

    well he is a stranger, big guy in a red jumpsuit and thick beard, you sit on his lap, you are expected to talk and smile for a photo w/a bright flash..... kinda creepy to some children lol
