5. SantanCon Donates to Kids in Need

Maybe it was FOMO that got you off Netflix and down to Himmarshee on a lazy Saturday night, but the fact that SantaCon involves itself in giving back to the community is even more incentive to press pause and slather on red and green garb.

SantaCon Fort Lauderdale encourages attendees to bring donations of gift cards, clothing, linens, school supplies, sports equipment, and more to local nonprofit, Kids in Distress. As of now, the group raised $750 in donations, although the Facebook event page states that over $1,000 was received. To donate, visit

4. You Can Dress Up

Dressing up is fun all year 'round, but it is not always socially acceptable to don a costume, much less Santa gear. Creativity has no limits at SantaCon, and there were plenty of people who exercised their brain muscles on Saturday. We saw Christmas tutus, inflatable reindeer and even human reindeer.
