This Saturday will mark the 20th Anniversary of SantaCon in New York City!
It's the one day of the year where New York hosts nothing but drunk Santas.
As City Councilman Brad Lander (D-Brooklyn) tweeted two years ago: “Being in Midtown during SantaCon makes me want to restore higher penalties for public urination for just this one day.”
Hillary Latos agrees.
“These hooligans use it as an excuse to get wasted and terrorize our city. They’re drunk from 8 a.m. until 4 a.m. the next day,” says Latos of the SantaCon participants who parade past her Midtown East apartment. “At 8 a.m. they’re already throwing up. They pee on the street. Nothing is more disturbing than seeing drunk Santas and slutty elves first thing in the morning.”
The crazyness of SantCon has led to the ban on Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North trains as well as some businesses in the city.
