SANTCON TAKES OVER NYC

LOCATION: New York City

Once again thousands of santas, reindeer, elves, mrs claus’s, snowman, trees….um the kid from the christmas story…I think I saw a gargoyle….hmmm….gumby and pokey….candy canes….and any other christmas related costume you can think of took to the  streets of New York City.

The day started with Santa’s meeting at several starting points all across the NY Area. From their everyone was directed through twitter on when and where to move too. The two landmark areas this year were Bethesda Fountain in Central Park and Christopher & W4th st in Greenwich Village. The time between the time to meet at these locations were filled with the usual bar hopping and running through the streets to spread the christmas spirit.

This year seemed to not have as many landmark locations, which was disappointing, but was still crazy. There are rumors about a possible Santacon taking place in July, but this is only hinted at on their twitter account.

Its not officially the holiday season til victoria secret has their fashion show…and Santas run rampant in the streets of New York City! Til next year Santacon, thanks for the great times!

Tim,
Once again you present to us your unique view of an event we might otherwise have missed or overlooked. Point in fact, there are many benchmarks by which people state that the holiday seasons are here…your’s was the first time I heard the season only begins after the Victoria’s Secret show and Santacon happens.
Great shots. Love em all, especially the snowman and the Santas reading menus.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas All!
Can’t wait to se what you do in the new year.

Great post. I attended a SantaCon in Korea on saturday, we didnt have as much santas but It may have been more amusing as the poor koreans didnt know what was going on.

I love the pic on the santa reading menus..I guess even Santa needs to eat at times! 🙂
