Santa Rides the Subway

As Leigh Ann and I headed out to shop on Saturday, Kurt noted it was "Santa Con." 

What's that? Apparently, it's when people dressed as Santa take over the city for a daylong bar crawl...

Or, as Leigh Ann said after we saw more than a few scantily-clad Missus Clauses, "I guess this is the December version of letting your inner slut out on Halloween??"
Clearly some research was required. According to the organizers at 

Santacon is a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason. 

Hmm, can you guys tell me more? Look! There's a handy FAQ to consult: 


Q: What is SantaCon?
A: SantaCon is your opportunity to be Santa!
Q: Is this some kind of political statement?
A: No. It's fun and only fun.
Q: Who's in charge?
A: Santa. 

And there we have it! Looks like I have a full year to get my fur-trimmed outfit, fishnets and hooker boots in order...
