My 2 year old is absolutely terrified of Santa, or Father Christmas as he is called in some families. We knew she didn't like him last Christmas but when we saw the fear this year spotting Santa in the distance we decided to not put her through the unnecessary tradition of a Santa photo.
I honestly don't see the value in forcing the fear just for a moments photo. Her daycare sent home a great alternative to the traditional Santa photo - they dressed my daughter as Santa! I absolutely love the idea and it is super cute.
If your little Gold Coast toddler is scared of Santa, why not try this great alternative to the traditional Santa pic?
