I am against SantaCon.
Ten years ago it was a cute, self-governing, and campy get-together for adults. There were rules for the road. It started at night.
Santacon was part of an online community of performance artists who were looking for something to do to keep the Burning Man momentum going.
Now it is like a slutty drunken theme-frat-party public pub-crawl gone amok.
It is bad for kids to see so many Santas behaving badly. If these ironic horny drunk Santas are going to be this way, please at least start after 8pm.
They are destroying the magic and setting a poor example.
If you wish to avoid SantaCon, then visit this site http://santacon.info to get their route and schedule.
They are not all bad. Some of them donate money and cans of food. Most don't seem to.
