This is an annual event aimed more at the naughty (although, hey, there's fun for the nice, too). It's SantaCon, a send up of sorts of the absurdity and kitsch of the Christmas season. Or, as the organizer puts it: "Santacon is a response to the consumer-culture of Amerika's Holiday season." To get in on the merriment, which will wind up finding a band of roving Santas causing (harmless) mischief around town on December 12th, you'll need to secure yourself a ticket (price optional) and provide your own Metro Day pass ($5). The event's starting point will be revealed only when you've bought your ticket.

And while pranking is the purpose, SantaCon has one more piece of sage advice: "Also, don't be a douchebag asshole Santa. No-one likes that." [Tickets] [Twitter]
