Article Photos: Better watch out: SantaCon is coming to town 1/3

FILE - This Dec. 11, 2010 file photo shows John Paul, center, of Manhattan, dressed as an Elf and Michael Smallwood, of Brooklyn, dressed as Santa riding the E train downtown in New York. Paul and Smallwood were participating in SantaCon a annual pub crawl where participants dress up in Santa and other Christmas theme outfits. SantaCon is coming to town _ in fact, to nearly 300 towns and cities around the world. Dozens, sometimes hundreds of red-suited revelers gather, bar hop, stop traffic and pose for photos.
