SANTACON GUIDELINES!

These guidelines are to help you and everyone enjoy SantaCon. They are not rules. SantaCon doesn’t really have rules as such (except that you must dress like Santa).

If you take heed of the collected wisdom in the advice below, it will help keep you safe, warm and on Santa’s Nice list.

  1. For the purpose of SantaCon, “Christmas” is the name of a popular secular holiday and has no religious connotations (much like the word “holiday”). This doesn’t mean we don’t respect religious views. It simply means that taking part in SantaCon doesn’t imply you support any particular religion or doctrine. It’s just silly fun.
  2. Dress up! A Santa hat alone is not enough.You don’t have to dress exactly like Santa but the theme is RED. That having been said, unusual interpretations of Santa-ness are often appreciated and Mrs. Klaus, Christmas trees, elves, snowmen, reindeer themes etc. are all good. Dress to maximize merriment whether singing carols and just greeting everyone – Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays!
  3. Have fun. Santa doesn’t whine! Please choose to have a positive attitude.
  4. Don’t get drunk, high and show up under the influence. There are children and senior citizens. Being drunk &/or disorderly in public will tarnish Santa’s reputation. One bad santa can ruin things for an entire location because we’re all dressed the same, duh. Also, it’s an offense and will get you arrested. Remember that there is no “bail fund” for incarcerated santas and if you cross the line you’ll be on your own. We have security who will immediately cart you away and have the whole thing recorded on video for the evening news and Youtube. Don’t be that Santa.
  5. Santa does not mess with security.This includes the police. Security and event staff are there to ensure everyone’s safety – it’s an important & necessary job. Thanks for your cooperation.
  6. Address your fellow santa as “Santa.”
  7. Watch out for elves and reindeers. Elves work hard for Santa all year and especially hard during the holiday season. Santa loves his elves and reindeers.
  8. Santa does not make children cry.Does this really need to be said? Seriously, if you see kids, don’t do anything to freak them out. Give them a nice smile and don’t be shy to pose for pictures.
  9. Optionally, bring gifts: Nice things to give children; nice or naughty things for adults.
  10. Do not throw your gifts at anyone, especially if those gifts are raw Brussels sprouts.
  11. Do not bribe the judges; especially the one named Kea (she’s the big boss lady).
  12. Read these guidelines one more time!

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!
