SantaconSantacon, previously known as Santathon, is a bizarrely brilliant custom involving a gang of Santas running around town, singing customised carols, giving out gifts, and encouraging strangers to sit on their laps. What exactly is the point of all this?...we hear you ask. Well, these guys just want to celebrate Christmas and spread a whole lot of festive cheer. The rules for participating Santas are threefold a) be jolly b) wear a Santa suit, and c) don't get arrested. The meeting point and route is top secret and won't be announced until the day before, so keep an eye on the website for a full guide on how and where to get Santa-fied.
