What's red and white and drunk all over (town)? Well, today, that would be Santacon.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. In fact, there's lots of 'em, and in all means and manners of Santa-esque garb. We spotted the festive tribe getting things going today in Echo Park. If you want one of these merry-makers to come near, best put a little hooch in that milk and maybe throw down some extra cookies. Where will Santacon show up today? Follow them on Twitter to find out if you'll cross paths!
