SANTACON- THE NEED TO KNOW
It’s cold outside, freezing cold–reading days begin in a few, but the only thing on your mind is….
(you + your friends + christmas)
SantaCon, in simplest terms, is a tradition of people coming together dressed up as Santa Claus (duh) and other holiday characters in various cities. The largest being held in New York, is only a train ride away. However, I highly recommend sticking around and experiencing Santacon, Fairfield style. Regardless of where it happens, SantaCon is the most drunk, fun, and hilarious, christmas event where people come together dressed in fun costumes and outfits.
At FairfieldU, however, don’t feel pressured to wear a full on Santa costume,
but don’t let anyone stop you though….
You can wear practically anything to SantaCon, you do you, but people tend to stick with the red and green Christmas-theme of the event.
Some typical outfits include leggins + xmas sweaters
santa claus costume
and so much more
Here are some options you can find at the mall
Other places to look:
Amazon –make sure you get 2-day shipping with Prime! (everyone gets prime through using an email ending in .edu)
Home Depot– I know it’s shocking, but between the potted plants and chainsaws you’ll find Christmas sweaters.
Marshalls– you’ll always find what you’re looking for at Marshalls
Don’t have time to shop? Don’t want to spend money? Lazy?
Switch with a friend! People will most likely not wear the same outfit twice, let alone post on insta in the same outfit.
or just Hot Chocolate
Boxed Eggnog and Rum
Hot or cold apple cider with Fireball
Or just your favorite drink

BUNDLE UP: As mentioned before, its going to be cold, especially near the water. Please stay warm– gets some gloves (hand warmers are also a genius idea), scarfs, hats OH! hats → santa hats. With the cold, also comes chapped lips and cracked skin: moisturize well and bring chapstick!
SAFETY: If G-Force is present, don’t fight or argue. Please be polite. Also respect the Senior’s homes; Treat it the same way you will want your beach house treated when you live on the point senior year.
EAT: eat before or eat after, either way, gets some good food in town... Colony Grill is always a good place for a quick bite
It’s Christmas time baby-
celebrate in Fairfield style
have fun, stay safe, capture the memories, and get in the holiday spirit
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
