Imagine this: you're a Chinese leader fretting about the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, then you look out your office window and see a bunch of Santas parading around Tiananmen Square. GAH!
Welcome to Santacon 2010, which was this past Saturday.
The most complete write-up of the day comes from Beijing Daze, who writes, "Sadly however, some media organizations chose to focus on the negative with headlines about Chinese security kicking Santas off the square." Beijing Boyce and UPI have text and stories too.
Also, one Jonah M. Kessel -- great photos on his site, including the one you see up top.
