Gallery: Are you afraid of Santa Claus?
PENSACOLA, FLA. (WEAR-TV) —
Its was the night before Christmas and a jolly old man with a red suit and white beard came down the chimney at night.
Hmm, that sounds a little scary, right?
Well, thank goodness it was Santa Claus and not the Grinch or a burglar.
Do you remember the first time you were told about Santa? My first experience and encounter with St. Nick was scary and indeed a frightful one.
My parents took me to the mall and we waited, and waited, and waited in a long line to see the world famous St. Nick.
Once I approached the picket white fence, there awaiting for me was a strange little man in a wintergreen colored suit and funny shaped ears.
I was shocked and amazed. I asked my parents "Why are his ears so pointy?" I was quickly scolded and told be nice to Santa's helper or you wouldn't get anything for Christmas.
Shortly afterwards I was quickly rushed up a few steps to a man sitting on throne and placed in his lap.
When I turned my head to face the jolly man, I instantly screamed to the top of my lungs! Aaah!!!
Who would ever think that seeing Santa Claus for the first time would be the most terrifying encounter of your life.
