Ahem. SantaCon is also a "non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political & non-sensical Santa Claus convention." Non-perishable food items are collected at the beginning, and adult beverages are enjoyed throughout the day. A portion of the proceeds made at most (if not all) bars are donated to Toys for Tots. As expected, Santa's Helper and I had a wonderfully festive time yesterday.
