Ho ho ho!
Here is information about SantaCon!
If you have never heard about SantaCon! It’s an event that is zanny, wild, and just damn fun!!!

Get together with tons of peope you know and dont know to create a huge Santa Mob going around manhattan!!

What is Santacon?
It's a not-for-profit, non-political, non-religious & non-logical
Santa Claus convention. We do it for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
SantaCon happens in major cities all over the world. NYC SantaCon 1998
was a blissful three-day affair with more than 100 Santa's flying in
from all over the country as NYC hosted the national event. SantaCon
1999 was extremely successful with one longer day and approximately 80
dirty Clauses. SantaCon 2001 was a single day condensed non-stop
blowout with over 150 red suits of naughtiness! 2002 was chock-full of
bars, parties, subway rides, shock appeal, dirty xxx-mas carols,
jingle balls, elf insubordination, Harry Hanukkah, and non-stop
ho-ho-hos, with plenty of visitors from around the globe, many friends
from L.A. and SF to boot. And last year, with close to 400 Santa's, we
wowed them in Grand Central & roamed across Harlem & caroled outside
the Apollo Theater.  There were stripping Santa's in the East Village
and bowling reindeer games in Central Park all accompanied by the
usual decadence and debauchery only residents of the North Pole could

This year, Santa's will back with a new naughty & demented list of
places to wreck havoc on. So get the reindeer and sled ready, cause
it's going to be a bumpy ride. We may visit some of the traditional
Santa haunts and some new ones as well.

Here is the 2004 411 from Santa...the day is Saturday December 11th.
Expect to start in the morning around 11AM. A hotline number will also
be available if you want to try to catch up with the Santa's, mid
rampage. Santa highly recommends spending the whole day until
midnight, when you will be delirious and exhausted and you'll be
shouting at strangers or mumbling to yourself and the whole thing gets
blurry and you wake up the next day in a gutter in the South Bronx.

This venerable tradition is almost a decade old, and makes flash mobs
look like sitting at home watching C-SPAN.  Picture archive at

How to be prepared:
Definitely bring some money and ID.  It's not uncommon for a
spontaneous chant of "Santa Needs A Beer!" to initiate the invasion of
a bar. Or also times when "Santa needs sophisticated adult

A bottle of water and some snacks is a good idea.

If you bring your own alcoholic beverages PLEASE be respectful of the
bars Santa is being allowed to enter and don't drink it IN the bar.
Drinks will be cheap at most of the bars we'll be invading so you may
not even have to bring your own, unless you're like Santa and have a
lifetime membership to AA.

Comfortable boots are a good idea.

Dress warm, it will probably be very cold and we will be marching
around outside at many points of the day. There will be some points
indoors where you will suddenly be overdressed. There is nothing wrong
with Santa stripping.

Bring your "Holiday Spirit" as you understand "Holiday Spirit", which
is to say Santa's are encouraged to let loose, be obnoxious, make a
mockery of the holiday, act in a confusing, disorienting & demented
manner to holiday shoppers . . . BE SURLY. Yell. Sing naughty carols.
Experiment with interpretive dance in front of traffic. But on the
other hand do not leave all your good judgment behind. Be aware and
try not to do the obscene stuff in front of children, try not to make
people feel unsafe, and don't get sent to the hospital or jail. OK?

Bring gifts you can give out. If you want, bring naughty gifts to give
grown ups. If you want, bring nice stuff to give kids. If you want,
bring coal to give evildoers. It's all up to you, Santa.

YES! YOU MUST BE wearing Santa/holiday/whatever theme wardrobe. Yes!
You can come dressed as an elf/snowman/reindeer/Chanukah Harry/A
Sandwich. But you gotta be something and be the hell out of it. No
spectators allowed. NO! A Santa hat is not enough. Get a Santa suit.
Make a Santa suit. Transform those red long johns. If you don't have
any creativity, buy something. If you don't have any money, be
creative. If you don't have any money and you don't have any
creativity, slap yourself three times and ask god to help you.

Note: You get what you pay for in a Santa suit. $10 suits are made of
thin, cheap flannel that won't keep you warm and will rip in the
crotch. Nuff said.

2004 Santa Suit Sources:
There are bunches of costume shops and places to get Santa suits in
NYC.  Santa is compiling an updated list of those stores and Santa
will be releasing it in the next day or two for you non-Santa suit
owning heathens.

If you have ANY questions whatsoever email Santa at and expect to be belittled and berated.

HO HO HO HO!!!!!!!

Be Well,

---Brought to you by your local Santa----
