Do you have an awkward Santa photo?

It's Santa season in Southern California, and children in malls here and across the planet are lining up to take their photos with jolly old Saint Nick.

But, as we all know, those photo sessions don't always go so well. 

KPCC is collecting cringe-worthy photos of kids with Kris Kringle, and we'd love to see yours!

Everything you share will be read by journalists only, and your photos and responses are private unless you tell us we may publish them.
