Santa Rampages: Here and Abroad

Dressing up in costume and drinking to excess should be left to the professionals. When the Las Vegas Community Artist Group planned a December Santa Rampage, they had good reason to think that the spirit of Christmas would accompany them no matter how much they would drink. The July 2004 shenanigans prove as much. Read Las Vegas Arts and Culture: SantaCon Followup for a report of that summer's fun and festivities, all kid-friendly and violence-free.

The same cannot be said of others. When a few folks in New Zealand attempted the same thing, disaster! Apparently most of these Santa impersonators were former warrior extras in "The Lord of the Rings" and couldn't stop acting that way.

To all my readers, a Merry Christmas!
