(photos from this year's Santacon, photo gallery here)

Santacon was fun. Not all that debaucherous, but very very very drunk. Some hightlights below:

- Santa-themed punk band performing and giving out shots on stage at Don Hill's (anyone know the name of the band?).
- Rockettes-style line-dancing Santas in from the the Grinch theater.
- Capoeira Santas in Tompkins Square Park.
- Santas boarding a school bus and handing out candy canes.
- Best gift from Santa: porn, of course.
- Cutest Santa: Lil' Spencer Santa.
- Greatest Santa invention: Rudolph the rolling reindeer, who dispensed liquor our of his, er, thingy, and Hershey's kisses out of his, er, back thingy.
- Best non-Santa costume: Rudolph The Disgruntled Reindeer.
- Best variation on Santa: Darth Vadar Santa.
- Bummer Santa: was actually dressed as an elf. He threw a kid over a fence to fetch a ball and almost poured his 40oz on a homeless lady (luckily more-sober Santa stopped him).
- Most divisive Reindeer Game: punting kickballs into a crowd of very unaware Santas.
- Santas getting arrested and carried away in cuffs outside the bars on the LES (Santa shouldn't smoke illegal substances in public).

Chris from Team Spider made a "Santa Rampage" film at Santacon this year, you can youtube it here.



It's punk and Xmas at the same time. Yes.

  1. Looks more debaucherous than the santa dash we have here (http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/en/Residents/Parks_Outdoors/Activities/santadash.htm) anyway..
