SantaCon 2010 NYC: Downtown and After Dark

The holidays are nearly over and New Year's Eve is, as always, the last gasp of partying in 2010. But 2010 included some seriously festive debauchery.

December 11 convened the annual New York SantaCon--where thousands of Santas, elves and reindeer take to the New York streets in a combination of daytime drunken bedlam and holiday cheer. Anonymized Santa sources said it was both much bigger and much more organized than 2009. Our video surveys the Santa invasion of the West Village streets and bars, including a band of Santas, rapper Maverick, a Santa on stilts, a penis receiving a ticket and "the drunkest, most Jersey Shore a**holes you've ever seen in your life".
