Unlike all those families who have yearly photos with Santa, I have... one. Maybe two. Because my kids have always been creeped out by the man in red. But more surprisingly was the fact even the 'spare' teen aka second daughter we had with us has the same phobia. Pics with Santa? No way. Not because they're too cool or too old, but because of a seemingly real phobia of Santa being a weirdo perv in disguise who ranks right up there with birthday clowns and Grimm reapers wandering the streets at Halloween.
I've always liked the idea of masquerade parties etc because of the hidden identity factor. How fun to dress up and be... anyone? But creepy, ghoulish Halloween costumes? Those creep me out. Now that I think about it, I can see why the girls' aren't too keen on having their photograph taken with the mall Santa, what with his hidden identity. I'm sure the Santas have a thorough background check but now I have comparisons in my head of Santa as a criminal fugitive or zombie-in-waiting. LOL
Are you afraid of disguises and costumes? Do they creep you out? Any super-fears of mimes, clowns, Santas etc? What's the weirdest thing you're afraid of???
