Hundreds of merry drinkers dressed up as Father Christmas caused mayhem on the streets of London as they partied into the night in an annual pub crawl to raise money for charity، Daily Mail reported.
Drunken festive revellers took to Trafalgar Square during Santacon and were spotted sitting on top of the famous lion statues، clambering on Nelson's Column and drinking copious amounts of alcohol.
The streets were filled with boozy Santas dressed in bright red costumes as they caused chaos in central London on the fancy dress pub crawl - but it was all for a good cause.
This year Santacon London is supporting Christmas for Kids، a small London based charity who devise and perform multi-sensory and interactive shows for free at children's hospices.
Describing itself as 'a non-profit، non-political، non-religious and non-sensical'، the parade that originated in San Francisco invites people to 'join the naughty list' and down drinks in bars and open spaces.
And people in cities all over the world also spread Christmas cheer as they celebrated the tradition. Santas were spotted in Los Angeles، New York City، Madrid and Glasgow as they dressed up، took selfies، paraded the streets - and even took part in a Christmas tree throwing competition.
