Taisy was there - on the steps of the General Post office and all around mid-town. With 5,000 other Santas, red, green, and all celebrating what the Chinese call 圣诞节Shengdan Jie. In fact, since every waitress and grocery clerk in China sports a Santa cap like at this IGA in Wuhan, I think this silly celebration will soon flourish in China - where they can REALLY put together a crowd.
Bill Cunningham was there too in Manhattan - with his usual wonderful photography. So here it is- Bill Cunningham's audio slide show: SantaCon(vention) in New York.
