#TBT Holiday Edition: See MTV's Shining Stars Pose With Santa

Some look excited -- others, like Lauren Conrad, not so much.

'Tis the season...to make lasting memories with the one and only Santa Claus. Ho ho ho!

Over the years, a bunch of MTV stars have posed for pictures with the jolly man in the iconic red suit; now, in honor of Throwback Thursday and the fast-approaching holiday -- it's one week from today! -- we've assembled a collection featuring the best of them. From chilling with the North Pole native at a mall to greeting him on the red carpet or even meeting him on the set of a certain hit series on this very network, all the folks who ran into Father Christmas had a truly priceless expression.

Take a look at our picks, and share your thoughts on your faves below!

    We'll let the former "Hills" starlet's caption explain this gem from way back when: "If only body language could talk, I'm 99% sure I was thinking, 'Who is this man? And where is my Polly Pocket?'"

    Who wants to know if they make Benny's melt-worthy, Christmas-themed ensemble in adult sizes? (We do.)

    The now-two-year-old still has a phobia of Santa, even though his mama was feeling hopeful that he would snap out of the stage sooner rather than later. Maybe 2015 will be the magical year to break the streak?

    Four years ago, the brunette beauty spread some cheer while hosting a special event at Kmart for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Drina also looks très stylish in her furry, festive cap.

    Someone looks awfully happy in this card -- but it ain't Kris Kringle.
