    Our Santa didn't have any kids on his lap. He had a really big chair so the kids just sat beside him. He didn't talk much other than sking kids to look at the camera.

    No, No, i didnt think he actually *was* a paedophile, he just sounded dirty.

    But I do think it's weird to be encouraging children on to a stranger's knee when they arent keen.

    Poor Santa.

    Anyway Santa isn't a stranger to us, we see him every year and he is lovely brings us presents.
    Very nice man but unfortunately a few mothers with their minds in the gutter ruin it for everyone.

    I've thanked the people I agree with, just wanted to say we don't make our children sit on Santas lap, it's a choice they make, I hold my younger children in my lap in the photo and I will every year until they feel comfortable sitting with him, last year our boys wouldn't even go near him so we basically walked in and straight out again which was fine of course hubby and I are always in the photo regardless of where the children are seated, I love this years one!

    Yeah I wouldn't make jasper. I didn't get photos done but jasper just ran and jumped on santas lap so that was pretty cute. But no I wouldn't make him sit on anyone's lap he didn't want to.

    I think you're reading WAAAAAAY too much into it OP, but DP talks like your DP too... everything is dirty. lol. I can relate to that part.

    As for Santa being weird... well, maybe... but DD has never cried. I dislike seeing terrified children forced onto his knee... it's just mean, and you don't even get a good picture so what's the point? DD didn't care her first year (she was about 4.5 months old), and since then, she's always wanted to see him, but has sometimes been a bit reluctant... but when I say, "that's okay, we don't have to," she fights me on it and refuses to leave the line.

    This year she actually replied when he asked her questions (first year that's happened...) and we didn't have to plead for her to smile... usually she wants to see him, but just kinda ignores him and refuses to smile. lol.

    Oh and my DF also twists EVERYTHING into an innuendo. Even if it doesn't even remotely make sense, with that 'tone' and a cheeky grin anything is dirty.

    It really is! we send so many mix messages to children

    Don't talk to strangers - but go sit on this strange mans lap.

    Don't take lollies off strangers - but on holloween let's knock of people's doors for lollies

    Santa has a beard that most children freak out about.

    I don't tell DD to not talk to strangers - I tell her to not talk to strangers WITHOUT ME THERE.

    So Santa is no exception really.
