Send Santa stories

Last year, Baylee Casselman, 15 months, was not happy about being close to Santa Claus at Northwoods Mall.


For weeks, your child probably has talked about visiting Santa.

When you arrive, you can see Santa Claus from afar. Your child is excited. You wait in line. It's finally his turn ...

And just as you are about to plop him in Santa's lap, he loses it. Bursts into tears. Has a total meltdown.

Don't worry. Many of us have been there. But now, we want to share your experience with the rest of the Lowcountry.

If you have a great photo (and/or story) of your child pitching a fit on the Jolly Old Elf's lap, we'd like you to share it with us. We'll print some of the best in an upcoming issue of The Post and Courier.

Send your submission to or Brenda Rindge, The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, S.C. 29403-4800. Be sure to include your name, address and a daytime phone number, the name and address of the child in the photo, the child's age at the time, the child's age now (if the photo is not current), where/when the photo was taken and your relationship to the child. E-mailed photos must be sent as attachments in .jpg format, and the subject line of the e-mail should be "Santa photo." (And if you have video, contact us for how to get it on our Web site.)

The deadline for submissions is Dec. 13.
