Your Photos: 'Tis the Season for Santa Tantrums

The build-up to get dressed up and meet Santa is a big one for a lot of little ones -- sometimes it's just a little overwhelming.

While many grown-ups enter turbo mode in December, preparing for holiday parties, presents and food -- it's really about one thing for our little ones: Santa!

But the prospect of finally meeting the big guy after a whole year of being good is just a little overwhelming for some tykes.

We here at Patch understand, and we want to celebrate your little ones anyway in what we hope will be a fun, light-hearted project we call 'Santa Tantrums.'

Have a photo of your little one having a meltdown after finally getting to sit on Santa's lap? Add it to our collection here on this story file. Or email your photo to Lauren Padgett at lauren.padgett@patch.com with your name and a little background on the photo you submit (where you met Santa, was it their first time, etc.), and I'll add it to our collection.

If your child is now a too-cool-for-you teen (or older!) but you have an awfully cute picture of them with Santa years ago, we think vintage shots are awesome too!

Where is the best place around to meet Santa? Tell us in the comments.
