  • Come December, cacophonous Santas rampage in red flannel through cities around the world. It started in ‘94 when a few dozen Santas crashed downtown San Francisco for a night of Kringle Kaos. Things have now reached Critical Xmas and Santarchy is a global phenomenon. You'd better watch out! Santa's coming to town!

Then Santa marches on Beacon Hill (21st Amendment 3:00), parades through the Common and down Charles Street (Beacon Hill Pub 5:00), rides the Redline to Harvard Square (John Harvard’s 7:00), and finally stumbles down to the Hong Kong in Harvard Square to shake his big red booty ‘til dawn!

The F's of Santacon
  • --> Don't fuck with kids. Santa spreads cheer. Period.
  • --> Don't fuck with cops. Arrest = not fun
  • --> Don't fuck with security. Don't steal. Don't vandalize. Security will tell the cops it was the guy dressed like Santa. That's all of us, jackass.
  • --> Don't fuck with Santa. We're here to have a good time. Can we focus on that?
