Well folks, it's that day again. Hide your kids, hide your wife, and avoid the streets of New York City on Saturday, December 10 unless your idea of a good cardio workout is side-stepping puddles of vomit, because SantaCon 2016 is upon us.
If you're not familiar, SantaCon is an excuse for the worst types of people to dress up like Kris Kringle, thus ruining the magic of Christmas for all youth witnesses, all in the name of creating an excuse to day drink to excess. It's bro-filled and alcohol-fueled, and it's pretty dumb. And yet, year after year it returns, like a hacking cough that sets in without fail at the first frost. It happens in cities all across the country, and this year a lot of them are celebrating on December 10th.
At this point, it seems like most of the world/internet agrees that participating in SantaCon is a bad idea. It's kind of crazy that anyone is still doing it. But if we're going to have to endure another year of this gross display of holiday recklessness, at least it can be used for good Twitter material. Here, I give you the best haters' reactions to the atrocity that is SantaCon NYC 2016.
