Every time Jocelyn Doyle tried to put her toddler daughter, Jillian, onto Santa's lap, Jillian's Santa warning signal went off with crying and tears. “Well, we try to get her to like Santa, but you know how kids are. They just, they think he's so scary,” said Doyle, of Boonsboro. Doyle said she showed Jillian, almost 2, the picture of her with Santa after Jillian opened her present in hopes Jillian will think of him in a more positive way.
