Santarchy Invades DC (photos)
If you saw dozens of Santas parading around the District on Saturday, Dec. 17, you probably were witness to Santarchy. This is an annual Christmas event held in major cities around the world where thousands of Santas visit major sites and spread their holiday cheer. Organizers describe Santarchy as "a non-profit, non-political, non-religious & non-sensical celebration of holiday cheer, goodwill, and fun." They are also quick to add that they are not protestors. and will not be occupying anyting except the North Pole. As of last count, no Santas have been arrested. We caught up with them as they gathered near the National Mall Carousel. View our pictures by clicking on the photo icon's below.
