SantaCon is an annual event held in cities around the world on a Saturday in December. The official website says it is not a pub crawl. In New York City thousands of Santas roam Manhattan spreading joy and good cheer. Really. And they stop at the occasional watering hole for a meeting. The watering holes are also drop off places for non perishable food items to be distributed to food kitchens around the city. I feel badly for the poor moms and dads who bring their believing kids into the city for Christmas entertainment on the day of Santa Con.

I thought — wouldn’t it be so idyllic to spend my days napping under the warm sun near a woods by a lake in company of the living beings that mean so much to me.
