The Victims Of Santacon 2015 Really Got Into The Holiday Spirits (Photos)

This weekend, people were devastated by the tidal wave of incredibly vocal drunk people in cheap Santa outfits that hits the city around this time every year.

Despite the best efforts of concerned citizens who'd love to finally put an end to the annual infestation known as "Santacon," history has shown time and time again humans are essentially powerless against the forces of nature.

In this case, we're talking about the nature of 20-somethings who forget to pace themselves while day drinking and increasingly become a menace to society as the sun moves from east to west.

There are a number of negative aspects regarding thousands of Santacon participants invading a neighborhood, but there is at least one upside: Most of them are armed with cameras and an obsession with documenting as much of the debauchery as possible on social media.

I've skimmed through as many posts as I could find to get the best pictures of this year's victims.

Santa needs helpers for all sorts of reasons.

In fairness to everyone, drinking for an entire day is probably just as tiring as delivering presents to every child in the world in the same amount of time.

At least this guy made it to a bench before passing out forever.

I wish this was a GIF.

"Mommy, I thought Santa used a sleigh to get around."

Santa has magic boots to protect him from puddles of puke.

He also has a magic hat that never falls off his head.

This is what it looks like when you've reached the point of no return and decide not to fight it.

I can understand losing your hat over the course of the day...

...losing your pants, on the other hand, implies there's some fantastic story you probably won't remember.

This must have been posted by everyone on this list.
