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...
Clearly some research was required. According to the organizers at www.santacon.com:
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:
SANTACON FAQQ: 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?
And there we have it! Looks like I have a full year to get my fur-trimmed outfit, fishnets and hooker boots in order...
