    This is odd and fun! 🙂 People dress like Santa…. only in NYC I suppose? Holiday spirit indeed!

      That’s a great description– odd and fun! It’s surreal seeing hundreds of Santas in my neighborhood. It happens in other cities, too– a growing trend!

    That is pretty funny. We have this annual Christmas bar crawl in Chicago and many dress up as Santa. It is very humorous to see a bunch of drunken Santa’s walk down the street from bar to bar.

      The key word is “drunken”– by 9PM there were passed out Santas on the streets and even a Santa walking directly down the middle of traffic on 2nd Ave. A very “festive” event 🙂

      I considered joining, but couldn’t motivate to dress up or deal with the bar lines at 11 AM! Maybe there is an age limit on SantaCon 😉

    The photos look like so much fun! This is the second year I’ve missed Santa Con, darn! Stuck in bed with laryngitis and bout of serious respiratory infection, but thanks for cheering me up with the pics, Les!

    Ha! That is so awesome. Here in London we’ve got Santa Runs – 5 or 6 km runs where all participants are dressed in Santa suits. Needless to say I tend to take part in these kind of events… 😀
