With the Christmas season upon us, the WIKY Morning Show introduces what we hope will become a new tradition in the Tri-state - Scared of Santa. The concept is simple - if you, like me, have had kids who became downright unhinged sitting on Santa's lap and you took a snapshot of, submit it. We'll post them on WIKY's Facebook page and here at wiky.com.
