Who’s afraid of Santa?

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

Baby James and Santa, first Christmas.

The Aspen Times and Glenwood Post Independent recently held an “Who’s Afraid of Santa” contest, with entrants posting their submissions on the newspapers’ websites. The contest generated 34 entries and 357 votes, with Aspen Sports donating a prize to the winner.

First place went to Baby James, submitted by Angela Miller. Maybe next year the poor little fella will be a tad more at ease with jolly St. Nick.

Second place went to the grand-nephew of Mary Knutson. “Obviously, he does not yet know nor understand the ‘magic’ of the season and what this man has to bring to him! I’m sure he will figure it all out all too soon,” wrote Knutson, who submitted the photo.

Claiming third-place honors was Caroline Compagnone. “As you can see, her shirt says, ‘I Love Santa’ and Miss Caroline does not agree! At least she’s still clutching her cookie!” wrote Lesley Compagnone, who submitted the photo.
