Beijing Santa Con 5 Posted by on Dec 25, 2012 in Culture, festivals

It’s Christmas day, and my gift to you, our fantastic readers, is my highlight video from this month’s annual Santa Con event in Beijing. In its 5th year, this day long pub crawl of gift giving, caroling, drinking, and dancing Santas made its way through the Beijing subway system, the traditional hutong alleyways, and the Drum and Bell Tower area. With plenty of stops to warm up with mulled wine and spread holiday cheer by giving gifts and singing Christmas carols, it was a day full of fun that we’ll always remember. Of course, that’s mostly due to the fact that we have video evidence. Otherwise, some of it may be a bit foggy… Anyways, Merry Christmas everyone!
