Manhattan overtaken by Santa-festation today.
At 11 am it just seemed odd to see so many Santas and elves gathering on street corners. By noon we realized there were too many Santas — 4 Santas in a booth having pancakes, a lonely Santa walking ahead of us, a Santa that came running around the corner chasing an elf — for it to be a coincidence.
We met my brother for lunch and he explained …it’s Santa Crawl here in New York today. It’s an annual tradition — all the college kids and “people from Jersey” pile into the City dressed as Santa and his elves and get hammered going from bar to bar.
We thought this was pretty funny.
My brother told us to give it a few more hours before coming to this conclusion.
