Santacon, NYC

I hate to overdo Santas, but I happened to be in New York during the annual flash mob known as Santacon, also known as the Santa Pub Crawl. Thousands of Santa wannabes followed Tweets around the city, from South Street Seaport to City Hall Park, Grand Central, the public library, Times Square and bars in between, depending on the Santa, since not all Santas are in it for the bars.  More pictures of the event and NYC in general are here. More about this red-and-white all over phenomenon is here.

You Definitely Better Not Shout

Nearly 1,200 Santas champ at their beards before the start of the first Ri Ra’s Santa 5-k Run and Walk on Church Street in Burlington, VT, Sunday. Let’s see: Beard: check! Hat: check! Santa jacket: check! Santa Belt: check! Baggy Santa pants: check! And off they went, to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Below, those beards can be a problem. Maybe some starch?
