Photo by myself in the East Village, around 4th Avenue and St. Mark's Place.
A Santa Claus, a Christmas tree and a giant present looked around for a cab, Saturday. I'm sure they were off to celebrate at a pub.
This costumed trio was a remnant of this year's SantaCon, the convention held every year of Santa Clauses in various cities. This year's New York SantaCon was held in ten spots, including Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, the main post office near Madison Square Garden and the American Natural History Museum on the Upper West Side.
SantaCon was marked down on my calendar, but I completely missed it while recovering from a very busy week at work. I'm glad I ran into the guys above while doing errands with Mark.
