SantaCon 2013 takes place all over the U.S. and while NYC had their SantaCon crawl on Saturday, many cities are holding their SantaCon’s on Dec. 21 this year. New York City’s SantaCon caused an uproar, as again this year people were seen vomiting and urinating through the streets of the city, according to the Gothamist on Dec. 15, Not all the SantaCon crawls are seen this way.
While NYC’s SantaCon is notorious for drunken Santas and people vomiting in the streets, the Santas that showed up this year by the thousands did their best to keep up this reputation. The NYPD actually asked bar owners not to serve anyone in a Santa costume or wearing a fake white beard, but many of them ignored the request.
Some bars had signs on their doors barring drunken Santas from their establishments, but overall , bars welcomed the Santas. There are many SantaComs yet to take place this year from Hartford to Phoenix, they are held across the nation.
