I want to start off by thanking every parent who let me get a good laugh by sending in their children trying (and failing) to take a picture with Santa. This was the best Christmas gift you could have given me. That being said, it was incredibly difficult to choose a winner because there were so many great submissions.

The photos were shown to a panel of judges and here's the amazing Santa fail that we chose:
