Bad Santas

December 13, 2013 - Harry Eagar
The New York Times reports something called SantaCon, an annual flash mob devoted to drinking in Santa suits. Doesn't take much to amuse some people, I guess.

The local cop in Hell's Kitchen is not pleased:

"John Cocchi, a New York Police lieutenant in Hell’s Kitchen, where Santas converged last year, sent an open letter to bar owners urging caution when it came to serving Santas. 'Having thousands of intoxicated partygoers roam the streets urinating, littering, vomiting and vandalizing will not be tolerated in our neighborhood,' he wrote."

It's about the same size as Fright Night on Front Street at its peak -- 30,000 people -- but the story from Manhattan makes the complaints in Lahaina sound overblown.

I got to Maui too late to experience the Whaler's Spree, so I don't know how bad that was. Pretty bad, apparently.

Santa should wear BLUE. Didn't think he was conservative. CocaCola is a reason but recently they cut ties with conservative groups and now Santa may wear BLUE and White.
