San Francisco is probably the only place where this type of record is even thought about. Santacon is a celebration of all things Santa and mostly not in the vein of traditional Christmas cards. The bars fill up with drunken, crazy Santas doing things that would make old Krisp Kringle blush or punch a reindeer. This year, the hope is to break the record for the largest number of naked Santas in one place.
The event started off small in the 90′s but has become a huge phenomenon with people coming in from all over the world. The event even has a Facebook page and it has some interesting rules:
* Gender is irrelevant! You don’t even have to be a good “boy” or “girl” Human, though, is a requirement since I thought that pets are already (usually) naked…
* You have to be naked, but CAN and SHOULD be at least wearing a Santa hat. Boots/boot covers and gloves are also OK. Otherwise, it’s Full Monty or nuthin’
* No Elves, No Reindeer, etc. San Francisco LOVE’s all Santacon revellers, but Guinness will be strict about the “Santa” requirement.
* You’ll have to sign some paperwork with your name, address and email and an OK to take your photo, that’s part of the Guinness rules too.
Some of you may be wondering if you may rub the fuzz the wrong way running around in your birthday suit. Turns out that public nudity is perfectly fine in San Francisco, surprisingly enough. The event begins on December 9th so get your Santa hat ready and don’t worry about the rest.
