Santacon New York City 2011

It happens only once a year each December, but is remembered fondly throughout the year.  You say Christmas?   We say SantaCon!  Santacon has a long and colorful history, and is celebrated around the world.  Santacon is essentially a gathering of like minded individuals who wish to both get into the Christmas spirit, as well as spread Christmas cheer to their fellow man.  In 2012 Santacon events will be celebrated in just about every major U.S. city, and in excess of 20 foreign countries!  In New York City huge throngs of Santa-wanna-be’s will gather to spread good cheer and raise money for Toys For Tots.

If you are looking to join the fun, there are just a few rules.  First, find out the date when Sanatcon will be celebrated in your city.  Then, dress up!  Creative interpretations of Santa gear are welcome and encouraged.  Remember to address everyone as Santa, and most importantly, remember Santa doesn’t make children cry!

Trah La La La La!

One of the better traditions that has survived over the years is caroling!  There is no better way to get in the Christmas spirit! What is it about caroling that makes us feel so good?  Is it the camaraderie of being with friends, or the happiness that caroling inevitably brings to the lucky recipients.  Whether you organize a group of neighbors, the local youth group, or friends from church, the results are sure to bring smiles to all involved!

Don’t forget to add some visual effects to your group.  An old fashion top hat, or Santa hat will instantly identify the group’s purpose.  The recipients of your jolly efforts could be elderly shut-ins, nursing home residents, or even neighborhood families with young children.  Imagine the delight in their eyes to have a group of happy carolers entertain them for a song or two.   Merry Christmas!
