29 SantaCon Instagram Captions That Are Way More Lit Than A Christmas Tree

Ad failed to load

Once the holidays roll around, it truly becomes the most wonderful time of the year to sip mulled wine by the fire and deck the halls. Along with the holiday cheer, cookie swaps, Michael Bublé's Christmas album set on repeat, and wine bar hopping with the girls (necessary), many of us have a staple boozy event at the very top of our bucket list to ring in this jolly season. That, my friends, is SantaCon. If you and your crew of elves, polar bears, Santa's helpers, and Saint Nicks are set to take on the city streets in festive fashion, you'll need to be equipped with several solid SantaCon Instagram captions that are set to sleigh all day long.

This insanely fun holiday bar crawl is celebrated in cities across the globe, and some of them begin as early as the end of November. So, round up the reindeer, grab your Santa hats and ugly holiday sweaters, and get ready for a day filled with beer and Santas (quite literally) everywhere you look. Whether you're on Santa's naughty (likely) or nice list this year, here are 29 captions for SantaCon that are way more lit than your Christmas tree. You're very welcome. If these gems are more lit than you and your friends are going to be at this jolly celebration, that's very questionable.
