Naked Santas Go For World Record In San Francisco
It always feels good to be part of something larger than yourself; it’s why people march in protests, attend music festivals or voluntarily watch the World Cup.
This being San Francisco, it’s also why a large group of people, all dressed in Santa hats and little else, are planning on coming together in an effort to set the world record for the largest gathering of naked Santas ever recorded.
This world record attempt, which will be fully documented for posterity by the good people at Guinness, comes as part of San Francisco’s tenth annual Santacon party on December 10th.
Started in San Francisco in the mid-1990s, Santacon is an annual celebration of Santa Claus wherein hundreds of revelers dress up like Kris Kringle and commit wanton acts of intoxicated debauchery in bars and on street corners across the city.
If you’ve ever wandered past a rowdy pub on a crisp December evening and wondered why two gentlemen dressed as Santa Claus were engaged in a fistfight, Santacon was almost undoubtedly to blame.
