Christmas In San Francisco: Holiday Celebrations That Only Our City Could Provide (PHOTOS)

Holidays in San Francisco are rarely traditional.

Hunky Jesus on Easter? Check. Citywide drunk santa takeover in December? Check. Satanic, burlesque-fueled parties and strip dreidel competitions on Christmas Day? Did you really expect anything different?

Presenting: a very San Francisco Christmas -- our picks of the best nontraditional Christmas activities in town. Love Christmas? Glide Memorial has a spot for you at its all-inclusive Christmas celebration. Don't celebrate Christmas? Head on down to Broke-Ass Stuart's "It's a Jewish Christmas" at the Make-Out Room. Hate Christmas and all of its lemmings? The First Satanic Church's 14th annual Black X Mass at Elbo Room is calling your name.

Just like every other day of the year, this city really does have something for everyone. Happy holidays, San Francisco.
