The Hunter's photos with Santa

FAMILIES can line up for hours to get a photo of their children sitting on Santa’s knee at Christmas time. There are outfits to be chosen, kids to cajole and plenty of practice smiles.

Sometimes parents get a great festive photo to show for their efforts. 

Other times they get something altogether more amusing. Whether it be tears or tantrums, smiles or sneezes, we want to see the Hunter’s Santa photographs.

Do you have a Santa photo from this year or maybe one from the family archives that you would like to share? Send it through to news@theherald.com.au to be part of our gallery.

HUNTER TWINS BECOME INTERNET SENSATION

Twins Harrison and Hunter Ainley-Lavis have become internet sensations overnight following an ill-fated meeting with, of all people, Santa Claus.

The 23-month-old siblings of Nicky Ainley and Chris Lavis were featured on Channel 7’s The Morning Show this week, during a special Christmas photo segment, with co-host Kylie Gillies labelling the duo’s picture “her favourite”.

The reason: the toddlers simply didn’t want to be there, crying and screaming out for “mum and dad” with a not-so-impressed look from the “man in red” adding to the comedic “happy snap”. Read the full story here.  

CHRISTMAS IN THE HUNTER

The Hunter’s Christmas Lights trail spans from the city to the country this year.

There is nothing more magical to do at Christmas time than take the family out for a night to look at beautiful light displays. Instead of meandering your way through the suburban streets looking for a twinkle in the night sky, we are putting together a Christmas Lights map and we want your help. Get the details here.
