    And I wonder if there will be any SOBER Santa's; if last year is any indication the answer is ho-ho-NO!

    I just might have to start looking for a good Santa outfit, it looked like loads of fun last year.

    To clarify: Friday is the announcement of the location. Saturday Dec. 11th is the date.

    If you've never been a Santa Claus, you should do it. Good to be a little high, but not drunk. Combination of a buzz and that red suit will take away anyone's inhibitions.

    Wish I could remember the picture "Yule Log Santa" that MTG found so funny. URL shows drunk_santa, but the page is gone.

    Is anyone joining in the festivities this year?

    The elves have just re-tailored my suit to make it as fashionable as possible for the Big Event:

    A week or so ago, for a few mornings, I didn't shave. I kind of wanted to see the reaction if I started sporting a beard. Unfortunately it's coming in grayer and grayer but I thought it was looking rather distinguished.

    The guy at my coffee bar asked me if I was I was letting it grow for Christmas.

    I went home and shaved it off.

    I wish I had started growing mine sooner, so I'd be fully ready for the festivities. But what I've grown so far will have to do. No way I'm going to wear a fake one -- it could interfere with imbibing. The elves tell me what I've got looks just fine. But you know how they can be.

    Santa's Survival Guide:

    What to expect

    • Santacon is an annual convention for Santa and his holiday brethren.
    • Expect holiday cheer, unconventional gifts, naughty carols and general mayhem.
    • Do not expect to be entertained: Santa IS the entertainment!

    How to be Santa

    • Santa doesnt just wear a cool suit and invade your dads liquor cabinet: he also brings gifts!
    • A gift can be a reindeer game, a song, a dance or a joke to entertain Santa and tourists alike.

    How NOT to be Santa

    • Santa never endangers his reindeer with violence, vandalism, inappropriate groping or theft.
    • Santa never gets SO jolly he needs babysitting.
    • Santa never expects to get away with behavior that an ordinary citizen wouldnt.
    • Its not a bar crawl
    • Every time you call Santacon a bar crawl, a sugarplum fairy dies.

    SANTACON FAQ

    What is Santacon?
    Santacon is your opportunity to be Santa!
    You MUST dress like Santa,
    You SHOULD ho-ho-ho like Santa,
    You OUGHT TO give out gifts like Santa and (of course)
    YA GOTTA drink like Santa.

    Is this some kind of political statement?

    No. It's fun. Remember fun?

    Who's in charge?

    SANTA.

    Santa doesn't talk to the press. "Ho-ho-ho" is good. "Publicity ho" is lame.

    Please remember the FOUR ****S:
    1. Don't **** with kids.
    2. Don't **** with cops.
    3. Don't **** with security.
    4. Don't **** with Santa. (yeah, it's okay to **** Santa)

    I was wondering why I'm not feeling well, someone out there must be calling Santacon a bar crawl.

    But the Santacon festivities last Saturday in Columbia, Missouri look appropriately colorful.
