December 8 is Santaarchy 2007. I love this event. Natalia post this event on IheartPGH way way back in 2005 (2 years seems like a long time in blog time). I am always thrilled to see it return each year.
A while back a group of people in San Francisco went out drinking dressed in Santa Suits. Thus began Santarchy. Now people all over the world get together for an evening (or afternoon) of drinking dressed as Santa. It is Santa fun for grown ups. And yes there are Santarchy’s all over the world. Check out the calendar located at Santarchy.com – on December 8 – there will be Santarchy’s in
*PITTSBURGH, PA, USA
*PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA
*and like 15 other cities
I love it when people are doing the same thing in Pittsburgh and Phnom Penh on the same day.
The Pittsburgh Santarchy will start at 2:00pm at the fountain in the South Side Works on Saturday, December 8, 2007.
In my attempt to find amazing pictures to illustrate each of these posts I discovered this picture on Flickr. I have no idea who these people are but I am glad they are sharing this picture. Apparently they met this Santa somewhere where it is warm and that this guy participates in the Pittsburgh Santarchy!
Thanks to Flickr member OhBurner for sharing this picture on Flickr. I love this picture because I just spent some time in Honolulu for turkey day (visiting Pittsburgh friends) and was wondering how Santa handles the warm weather.

I think there is even a picture of the great Golf Cart Santa!
