What’s jolly, red, and super-drunk? Find out today when hundreds of Santas take over the sidewalks for the annual debauched gathering known as SantaCon. Not so much a bar crawl as a wild pack of Santas (and elves and reindeer and indefinable holiday creatures) staggering around the streets and into bars, Santacon has grown into a worldwide event, happening everywhere from Tokyo to the McMurdo Station in Antarctica. And anyone can join in the absurdity. Check nycsantacon.com for songs to sing (doesn’t everyone love “Deck My Balls”?) and rules on costumes (No. 1 rule: Don’t just wear a Santa hat and jeans). And try not to scare the kids, OK?
