Santarchy and Santacon 2006

San Francisco Santacon 2005

It’s that time of year again. Santarchy is beginning to rear it’s gnarly red-capped and bearded head. Santacon 2006 events are being planned for San Francisco, Tokyo, New York City, Washington DC, Portland, Boston, Houston, Dallas and many other cities around the world. For the latest Santarchy news, check out, now featuring two new guest Kringle bloggers, Santa de Nada & o’Santa Bin Laden!

No force on earth can stop one hundred Santas!

– Klaus Maginrannus (1995)

This is the 13th year of Santarchy. Santa Melmoth has a great write up on how it all began.
