So I've just been up to the shops for the first time during Santa photo season, and every year it begs the question WHYYYY??? Why do parents force their quite obviously petrified, hysterical toddlers to go and sit on a big scary strangers knee, just for the sake of a freaking photo?
It really is one of my pet hates at Christmas. Some of these kids are SO scared and begging for their parents. Yet they are still forced to stay there. When I walked past today, after hearing the child's screams all through the store, the parents said "we don't care if she's crying, just take the photo". Cruel much?
