Spread some Christmas magic (or laughs) by sharing those adorable (or scary) pictures of kids sitting on Santa's lap here!
There's something magical about seeing the look in a child's eyes when they peer into Santa's. Or — it's the look of fear and terror. Let's face it, sometimes the trip to visit isn't as pleasant as we all imagined. Either way, share some of the Christmas fun by posting your latest pictures of children sitting on the big man's lap. If there are enough submissions, the top photos will be shared in another story! Take a look at some photos shared on creepysantaphotos.com, for a good laugh or a shiver.

Fuzzy on how to shoot clear photos of holiday lights? We can help.
Holiday lights add sparkle to so many special moments. When I was a kid, I lived for the night my mom loaded us into the car and drove us around town so we could marvel over the magnificent displays that took hours to produce. We pointed from the car and kept moving. Now, though, folks get out and snap a photo. But the twinkling lights, and other holiday photos, aren't easy to capture. Starting today, we're going to run a series that describes how to snap photos of lights, family and other holiday moments so you can preserve those memories. I wish I could take credit for this tutorial, but I can't. I got it from Strobist. The blog is published by Dave Hobby and has been around since 2006. This site has a track record; the content and the …

Mark Stone for some decorating safety tips this holiday season. Here's what he had to say: • Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant and keep them away from candles or any other heat source. • Not all holiday lights are made equal so be sure that you know whether yours are for indoor or outdoor use and be sure to replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. • Lighting candles…

We should be working ... but it's so easy to do some online shopping at work today.
Give me just a second ... I need to enter my security code so I can buy a sweater online ... ooooh, what's that? A Cyber Monday deal on watches? Oh! Look, half off boots on this website! Sorry, is anyone else distracted by online shopping deals today? You're not the only one! According to comScore, you're one of the shoppers contributing to a record-breaking $1 billion in expected sales on Cyber Monday.
