SantaCon NYC Hits the Streets of New York City

And ladies, don't forget your Santa's little helper.

Attention all sketchy Santas and Ms. Clauses: Sweeping the streets of New York City on Saturday, December 11th, SantaCon comes to the Big Apple. The event begins some time around 10 a.m., but you can expect many to hitch their sleighs outside the bars well after the opening sleigh bell, spewing forth this and other such corny jokes about the holidays. (I hope this will be the only such corn that they are spewing.)

According to the event’s website:

“Santacon is a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason. Santa will announce his starting location(s?) on the SantaCon website on the evening of Friday, December 10.”

So I guess stay posted?

The event’s website also offers a couple important provisos, specifically mentioning the fact that all Santas must attend in “full and glorious holiday regalia”, including, somewhat incongruently, as “Hannukah Harrys”. The event’s rules are not really fit to print, nor is the promotional picture (see above), which may or may not feature an inebriated Naint Sick drinking a Windex martini and staring up a young vixen’s dress.

While SantaCon may not be the most wholesome way to spend a Saturday morning-into-night, isn’t that what New York City’s there for in the first place?
