TOP 10 WAYS KIDS ARE SCARED OF SANTA
10. Bloody Murder Scream
The purest showing of terror: The Bloody Murder Scream. These children held nothing back and let their primal terror be heard. Will the screaming ever end? Not if Jolly Saint Nick has anything to say about it.
9. The Screaming Choir
Anytime you subject more than one child to a scarring event such as sitting on Santa’s lap, why not add another child to the fun. Multiple children mean multiple screaming. The unholy cacophony reaches the North Pole.
8. No Escape
Some Moms are sadistic enough in their blind desire to see their child sit with Saint Nick that they forcibly hold their screaming child in near the red stranger. Hello, Mommy Dearest.
7. Slip Sliding Away
As all parents know, the young child’s best escape plans involve the slip-through or the arm raise. This simple maneuver allows the child to slide effortlessly from any grip Santa may have. Let gravity and a limp body do the work.
6. The Scream and Reach
When screaming and pleading has failed, the next step involves reaching out for help, and so we have the scream and reach. Unfortunately the person who you are reaching for is the one that put you there. You are grasping for straws…and therapy years later.
5. What's Your Problem?
Sometimes one child is brave enough to smile or they may actually be enjoying this Christmas tradition so much they are either oblivious or don’t care that their sibling is having a mini-coronary. One child screams and the other wonders what all the ruckus is about. And by the way, the looks on these Santa faces are the best of the bunch.
4. Scream and Stare
Sometime you scream into the void but sometimes you cannot look away from the horror. Looking at the man in the red hat while crying for the moment to be over may be the longest 2 minutes of your young life. When its over you know you have looked evil in the eye and have been changed forever.
3. I Will Not Cry, As God is my Witness…
These kids have refused to give into the fear, but they still are wrapped in an uneasiness that can’t be denied. So while the terror that wells within them is trapped, it still lays in their stomachs like cold dead rotting carcass.
2. I Gotta Get Outta Here
Some brave children know that the only way to avoid the red Satan, I mean Santa, is to run. And run they do, escaping with their lives and, if they are lucky, their sanity. Of course, good ol’ Mom or Dad will soon be dragging their limp bodies back for more.
1. This Ain’t Worth Minimum Wage
Here is a shout out to all the Santa Clauses who have given up after hours upon hours of crying, screaming, wetting, begging, fighting and loud children. The looks on these dejected, worn out and exhausted Santa faces say it all.
TOP 10 WAYS TO DISTINGUISH TWINS
10. Name Tags/Bracelets:
Keep bracelets from hospitals, as they will help parents until they are acquainted with the babies.
Voices are different, especially when they cry. Parents, family and friends will need to listen carefully to find distinctions.
For those who visit, colour coded clothes are helpful, especially when twins are at an infant stage.
7. Head Structure
Many identical twins also have different head structures. One may have a rounded head which looks bulky, while the other has a thinner face.
Scars also are used to tell apart their children. Those who had chicken poxes will exhibit scars. Many also develop scars from accidents (like Voldemort attacks.)
5. Belly Buttons
Umbilical Cords are not always cut in the same way. The belly buttons of identical twin babies may thus differ. Parents will be able to tell them apart when unclothed.
4. Left Handed/Right Handed
Identical twins could be easily distinguished by their writing skills. You rarely find twins who are both right handed or left handed, unless they have been taught and trained otherwise.
Marks on the body also are good ways of distinguishing identical twins. One twin may have a noticeable mole or birthmark, the other twin may not have.
Hair may differ among identical twins. Hair twirls, hair styles and colour are some things people should look for. As twins get older, their hair preferences do change and are visibly different.
Many identical twins are not always the same height. One may be taller while the other is shorter.

3. Bhopal Gas Tragedy 1984 (Pablo Bartholomew)
Because safety standards and maintenance procedures had been ignored at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, a leak of chemicals triggered a massive environmental and human disaster. Photographer Pablo Bartholomew rushed to document the catastrophe. He came across a man who was burying a child. This expression was so moving and so powerful to tell the whole story of the tragedy.
2. Operation Lion Heart (Deanne Fitzmaurice)
“Operation Lion Heart” is the story of a 9-year-old Iraqi boy who was severely injured by an explosion during one of the most violent conflicts of modern history – the Iraq War. The boy was brought to a hospital in Oakland, CA where he had to undergo dozens of life-and-death surgeries. His courage and unwillingness to die gave him the nickname: Saleh Khalaf, “Lion Heart”.
1. Tragedy of Omayra Sanchez (Frank Fourier)
Frank Fournier captured the tragic image of Omayra Sanchez trapped in mud and collapsed buildings. The eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia 1985 triggered a massive mudslide. After 3 days of struggling, Omayra died due to hypothermia and gangrene. Her tragic death accentuated the failure of officials to respond quickly and save the victims of Colombia’s worst ever natural disaster. Frank Fournier took this photo shortly before Omayra died. Her agonizing death was followed live on TV by hundreds of millions of people around the world and started a major controversy. May her soul rest in peace…
