Santarchy and Santacon 2005


Well boys and girls, it’s that time of year. Santarchy is starting to spread again as Santas are taking to the streets for the annual Santacon events in cities around the world. It all started back in 1994 as a small Cacophony Society event in San Francisco called “Cheap Suit Santas”, and now it’s a global phenomenon. As my good friend Klaus Maginrannus says, “No force on earth can stop one hundred Santas!”

Looking for a Santacon in your town? Check out the Santarchy and Santacon tribes on Tribe. I’ll be updating the archive as notifications of Santacon events come in. You can also follow all the Santarchy action online using Technorati’s blog search and Flickr photostreams.
