Celeb kids: they’re just like your kids. You get them all dressed up in an adorable outfit so they can go meet Santa Claus, yet seconds into their encounter with Jolly Old Saint Nick, they burst into tears. Maybe it’s not *exactly* what you (or their celeb parents) had planned, but you have to admit that the resulting photographs are pretty hilarious. Here are some of our favorite celeb kiddos having a less-than-merry time with the man in the red suit:

Singer Jana Kramer’s daughter Jolie

Well, she didn't like Santa this year.... #mygirl #thegrove

Jana Kramer took her daughter to meet Santa Claus, but instead of telling him what she wanted for Christmas, Jolie decided to reach for Mom and try to make her escape. Fair enough.

 

Jade and Tanner Tolbert’s daughter Emerson

So, before I explain, just exactly how much do you know already, Santa? @emmy_tolbert photo: @melissarieke

Emerson Tolbert didn’t seem afraid, exactly, when she met Santa Claus. However, you could say that she seemed perplexed by the whole thing. Who is this large, bearded man, and why is he asking what I want for Christmas?

 

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s son Gunner

@gunnerpratt fist time seeing Santa!???? it was a last-minute decision so we don't look festive ????#babysfirstchristmas #christmas ????

Speidi took their newborn son Gunner (who already has his own Instagram account, by the way) to meet Santa Claus in celebration of his first Christmas. Turns out the future social media star wasn’t that impressed. He slept through the whole thing, actually.

 

JWoww’s son Grey

was only able to get one before dad rushed in and saved Grey lol such a sweet boy ???? but he was not into Santa haha

While Jenni Farley’s daughter seemed perfectly content to meet Santa Claus, her son had quite the opposite reaction about the encounter. We have a feeling this one will be shown at his wedding.

 

Nev Schulman’s daughter Cleo

 

nailed it

The Catfish host’s daughter didn’t really care about the promise of toys and treats, she wanted out of there ASAP.

We absolutely love these photos. Perfectly staged Christmas cards are great, but this brings a dose of reality to the holiday season. It’s pretty refreshing.
