"Santacon is a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Santa Claus convention that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason."

This is my second Santacon and I have to say that it gets bigger and better every year. Basically, you dress up like Santa and get drunk. Many people bring canned food to prove that Santacon is more than just getting drunk, but about the Christmas spirit of giving. Many people dress up as Santa, while others opt for different Christmasy costumes such as elves, reindeer, snowmen, etc. Its a day where "Ho Ho Ho" chants are OK and everyone gets drunk whether they're naughty or nice.
There are designated stop set up by the people who created Santacon, but you're more likely to meet up with some friends and make your own bar-crawl. I went to Stitch, Village Pour House, and Galway Hooker (West village)
Honestly, its one of the best days of the year. Just don't blame me when your Facebook status says "What happened yesterday???"
