WATCH: The Many Reactions Kids Have to Meeting Santa Claus



    Trying to Get the Perfect Photo With Santa

    Every parent knows that bringing their child to meet Santa can produce either an adorable or hilarious photo.

    NBC Boston joined two Santa Clauses on the job to see how different children react to Jolly Old Saint Nick. Some of the children could not contain their excitement, while some of the younger ones didn't know what to make of the Christmas legend.

    Good thing these Santas know just what to do when a child is a little nervous, or scared, to meet them for a photo opportunity.
