A pub crawl of people dressed up as Santa saw some make the naughty list when they were filmed brawling and urinating against a wall.
London’s Santacon took place on Saturday and although most managed to keep themselves on the nice list by helping to donate more than £15,000 to a children’s charity, others didn’t behave like the real Santa would.
Footage shows two men, dressed with their red and white jacket and trousers rolling around on the floor in London’s Pleasure Gardens in Vauxhall.
Other footage shows others drinking to excess while some decided to relieve themselves in public.
Already concerned about revellers antics from previous years, the Santacon website warned those taking part to "Not be that Santa".
They were told to ‘hold it in’ as regular rest stops would be available on the official route.
The relatively new holiday tradition originated in San Francisco in 1994 as a form of public theatre, and a statement against the consumerism of Christmas.
In subsequent years it spread to Portland, Los Angeles and New York City and has now secured its place in London’s calendar too.
The London website reads: "Santacon is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious and non-sensical Christmas parade that traditionally takes place in London one Saturday every December.
"There’s no particular reason to dress up in Santa suits, run around, give gifts, sing songs, have strangers sit on our laps and decide who is naughty or nice.
"But it’s a lot of fun so Santa does it anyway!"
On a more positive note, this year Santacon London teamed up with Christmas for Kids and donated £15,680.
