Swarm of drunk Santas spread Xmas cheer in Toronto

Posted by Amanda Cupido / December 16, 2013

SantarchyMore than just snow hit Toronto this weekend. A swarm of Santas blew through the city on Saturday night. The infamous Santarchy event is said to be inspired by SantaCon which takes place in over 300 locations around the world. The goal is to spread Christmas cheer while drinking and handing out treats. It all started at the Imperial Pub with nearly 100 Santas. As they hopped from pub-to-pub, the crowd grew, as each Santa came prepared with extra swag to recruit along the way.

Santa was in in drunken stupor this weekend.

Is it me or was everyone in attendance ancient? Nothing like partying with 40 year olds who should probably be at home doing something productive like raising children instead of acting like they're 19.

It's just you. Normal people do not crawl up into a ball and disappear from life when they reach 40. Maybe when you grow up and mature you will realize that.

Damn your life has turned to shite already.

Steve-So are you now saying it's okay to be drunk in public?
Rachel replying to a comment from DelayedAdulthood / December 16, 2013 at 06:42 pm
Totally just you, man. If it's ever a choice between partying with 19 year-olds or 40 year-olds, I'd pick 40 year-olds in a heart-beat. People with life experience know how to have a good time.
For reference, I am under 27 years old, and was one of the santas.

Rachel Santa and Fee Santa, sing it.
As for you DelayedAdulthood, believe it or not you don't suddenly cease to exist once you pass a certain age, nor to you cease to have friends, or cease to want to have fun. And someone with your handle should probably not go throwing stones when it comes to delivering proclamations on the rules of age-appropriate behaviour.

DEFINITELY just you. I'd bet my last nickel that you are lonely and friendless; just too hard imagining anyone wanting to socialize with you. Just sayin.

They already had children. Unfortunately, said children turned out like you so now they're divorced and MUCH happier.

Which Santa is Rob? Doug? Kathy? Randy? Was Rob eating out after the riot?

I didn't know it was a requirement that we all bear children. Or that not even parents can just go out and drink their faces off once in a while. Try having some fun, yeah?
