Some kids obviously missed the "you better not cry" part of the song. The pouting part, too. Santa got only a few sniffles for some youngsters, but others couldn't hold back their get-me-out-of-here-right-now screams.

Who knew Old St. Nick could be so scary? Apparently, the parents and grandparents of dozens of youngsters who sent us their Santa photos.

To be fair, we also got lots of really cute pictures, too.

Enjoy! And we hope you have a merry Christmas, with no tears.
