Every year, Santa Claus takes time out of his busy schedule to visit with good boys and girls and hear their Christmas wish lists.

Most kids are thrilled to tell Mr. Claus what they'd like to get for Christmas, but for some kids, visiting with the big guy is not their idea of fun.

The tantrum on Santa's knee is every parent's, and child's, worst nightmare. However, the photo offers a humorous memory that can be shared year after year.

Check out this year's gallery of "Santa Tantrums," showing local children who weren't quite in the holiday spirit when meeting Santa.
