A DIF­FER­ENT KIND OF POLE

Real People - - CAUGHT RED-HANDED -

The North Pole? That’s so last decade! This lot swapped the cold va­ri­ety for lamp posts and scaf­fold­ing poles in 2013.

The naughty San­tas were part of the an­nual flash mob gath­er­ing, San­ta­con, in Cen­tral Lon­don.

Thou­sands meet up dressed as Father Christ­mas and have some fes­tive fun. But there’s al­ways the odd few who have one too many tip­ples. And, er, start climb­ing things.

Rev­ellers at the flash mob in New York have also run amok in the past. In 2013, six San­tas and an elf were videoed (be­low) slid­ing across the slushy streets, throw­ing punches. The elf had his head smashed into the rear end of a taxi! It’s of­fi­cial… too many San­tas spoil the fun!
