Inside Santacon, New York City's annual Christmas-themed pub crawl.
Thousands of Santas turn out to give to charity and to party.
Past revels have gotten a little out of control.

Civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel told the press, "We're trying to transit from what it was into something more positive."

The event began in a Williamsburg park, and wound through several bars. Bad behavior was mostly kept to a minimum this year.
