Suit up! Santacon supports Maovember for second straight year


For a second straight year, SantaCon teamed with Maovember for a “hair of the dog” event. Dozens of Santas, elves and other North Pole denizens took to Beijing’s streets on December 1 for a pub crawl that began before noon and lasted deep into the night.

Sales of Santa suits—just 元50 each!—were donated to charity and raised 元2050. Sales of mulled Orchard Pig cider at one of the many stops, Paddy O’Shea’s, also went to charity and raised 元1500. That meant a grand total of 元3550 and a nice early Christmas present for Maovember and its partners Bread of Life Bakery and The Library Project. Check out some of this year’s photos below and some of last year’s at this link.

Maovember focuses on quirky events for good causes. Our 2022 partner is Library Project, which has furnished thousands of reading rooms in rural schools. Learn more about Maovember here. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
