Nothing says Christmas like thousands of drunk Santas roaming New York streets. This, friends, is Santacon.

This annual pub crawl is, according to its organizers, a "non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical." According to these pictures, the numbers have truly swelled as these Mister and Misses Santa Clauses seemed to fill Grand Central and the South Street Seaport to bursting.

Seeing the red hordes flood the street with their wild merriment reminds one of some kind of North Pole revolution, a drunk Holiday Occupy Wall Street.
