Nothing says celebrate the birth of Jesus like a bunch of people donning Santa Clause costumes and going on a pub crawl to get shit faced in the middle of the afternoon.
Ah, the holiday season is upon us and that means one thing, SantaCon is back and people aren't thrilled.
First snow of the year on the same day as Santacon... coincidence? I think not 🎅🏻— Dave (@Riinaldooo) December 9, 2017
Exchange the red suits for green and it looks a lot like St. Patrick's Day.
Unless you live here, it is very hard to understand the horror that is #SantaCon. Like some Jersey Shore locusts, a 1,000 people who love "Tennis Hoes and CEOs" keg parties, swarm upon lower Manhattan and bring their St. Patty's Day-ish plague of drunk entitlement with them. pic.twitter.com/DvxqGOSReM— KYLE A.B.

Not all bars and restaurants want to participate.
Okay, even the Scroochy-ist among us have to admit this guy is adorable.
Others, not so much.
Oh well, it's just for one day. Right? Promise us, it's just for one day.
And in a bizarre mashup SantaCon meets Stranger Things.
John Williams summed up our feelings.
Argument: Humans are essentially good. People are born innocent and everyone deserves to be loved. All things being equal, the vast majority will choose to promote beneficence over evil.— John Williams (@johnwilliamsnyt) December 9, 2017
Let's hope all the Santas' sleep it off. Until next year...
