Every December, cacophonous Santas rampage through cities around the world. It started in ‘94 when a few dozen cheap-suited Santas crashed downtown San Francisco for a night of Kringle Kaos. Things have since reached Critical Xmas and Santarchy is now a global phenomenon. You'd better watch out! Santa's coming to town!

Boston Santacon 2008 starts at Faneuil Hall Marketplace (The Purple Shamrock 1:00 PM, maybe Cheers and Salty Dog after). Then Santa marches on Beacon Hill (21st Amendment 4:00), parades through the Common and down Charles Street, rides the Redline to Harvard Square (John Harvard’s 7:00), and finally rides the 66 (9:30 PM) straight to Harper’s Ferry to shake his red flannel booty ‘til dawn!

What should Santa bring?

1. Flannel: Bring a costume! Any costume! Santa costume’s great, or get clever and come in something else!
2. Flask: Waiting for a drink when you’re one of a hundred Santas can take a while. Pack your own to keep Christmas spirits high and keep your bar tabs low!
3. Funds: Bring cash for booze, subway, buses, taxis, and tips! SANTA LEAVES A TIP!!!
4. Fun: Does this need explanation?

Rules: (Remember these to help keep Santacon fun for EVERYONE, not just you)

The 4 F’s of Santacon:
--> Don’t fuck with kids: Santa’s here to spread cheer. Growing up in this culture is scarring enough. Please don’t make it any worse.
--> Don’t fuck with cops: They keep drunks like us safe. And they’ll arrest you, no matter what you’re wearing. That’s not fun.
--> Don’t fuck with security: Don’t steal. Don’t vandalize. Security will tell the cops it was the guy dressed like Santa. And that’s all of us.
--> Don’t fuck with Santa: We’re all here to have a good time. Can we focus on that?
