Santa can be a scary guy to the knee-high crowd. There’s his big fuzzy suit and voluminous beard, not to mention that jolly laugh.

Or Santa can be the best thing since sliced bread.

Do you have a photo of yourself or your children with the guy in red where everyone is not quite enjoying the experience? Or perhaps your wee one is sporting the happiest smile in a photo ever?

We want to see it! Share your photos in NonpareilOnline.com’s The Best of Saint Nick Pics Contest, and you could win a gift certificate to Sapp Bros., the contest sponsor.

How do you participate? Visit Santa and see how your little ones react! Or, dig through those old photos albums and submit your vintage Santa visit photo.

Click here to visit the contest site. Submit your photo. Families may enter more than one.

Voting begins at midnight Thursday, Dec. 8. The submission period runs until voting ends at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20.

View the entries and vote for your favorite. Have your friends and family vote, too. Submissions will still be open when voting begins, so enter early!

Visit the contest website or email web@nonpareilonline.com for more information. Information is also posted under the Contest link on the NonpareilOnline.com Facebook Page.
