The annual NYC SantaCon is coming to town once again, reminding us that everyone deserves to spend a little time on the naughty list, even Santa. Hundreds of not-so-good little boys and girls will don the big man’s likeness and take off on a massive bender to deliver gifts of booze and bawdiness. Passers-by might be treated to a pick-up line from these sinful Saint Nicks (“Who’s your daddy? That’s right, Father Christmas”) or creative carols (such classics include “Cannabis Is Coming to Town” and “Frosty the Cokehead”). And if the Christmas spirit is in you—or any other kind of spirit, for that matter—anyone properly decked out for the debauchery (in full holiday costume of any variation or denomination—Santa doesn’t judge) is welcome to stuff some stockings of his or her own. Starting locations and times will be announced on the website Friday evening
