Oli has a good post about seeing Santacon the other day.
Through the window of the Soho Pizzeria I spied them. Hundreds upon hundreds of crimson-suited Santas wending their way through the streets of London. Santacon 2007 had arrived and last Saturday I was one of thousands of onlookers.
Not three days before I had witnessed Commutercon on Waterloo Bridge as hundreds of business men, dressed identically, had made their way from the Strand to Waterloo Station, all obeying the strict rule that none of them was allowed to smile or laugh. At least I think that’s what was going on.
From Flashmobs to Cinemas, terraces to moshpits, aside from the fun of the activity we’ve arrived to enjoy, there’s an excitement in the very act of ‘doing things TOGETHER’.
