Under: Brooklyn,My Life,Things to do in NYC

Last Saturday, I woke up super early to dress up like Santa Claus and run through New York. Here are some pictures from the day (in case you can’t tell, that Saturday was absolutely FREEZING and my Santa outfit was underneath my jacket the entire day). I thought we would spend the majority of our time inside bars and the only time we’d be outside was to get from bar A to bar B, but people had more fun playing in parks and just loitering the streets!

The girl next to me claimed to have met us the night before so we decided to take a picture with her.


Amanda, Lou, and Elliot inside Brooklyn Bowl, where there was an impromptu Santa rave:

A bunch of Santas pulled Lou into this formation while we were walking from one meeting location to another. Check out the green Santa with no face (from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia…or something):


Me and Lou at another stop:


The day was very fun and chaotic; all of the Santas met up in outer boroughs and Hoboken instead of having one central meeting location in Manhattan (we eventually met up with the other Santas in Washington Square Park). It’s quite a scene to see so many people dressed up like Santa on a random Saturday morning, but it was definitely worth it! There are other Santacons all over the US (and overseas!) – you can find out more about Santacon dates here.
