Santa Claus is Running Through Town!

Here comes Santa Claus, 
Here comes Santa Claus, 
Right down Princes Street...

Hold on.  Make that 1,000 Santa Clauses.

Every December, Edinburgh's Christmas hosts a Great Scottish Santa Run to raise money for When You Wish Upon a Star, a charity that grants wishes to seriously ill children.  For a seriously small registration fee (5 pounds!), I got a free Santa Suit and beard, a warm-up Zumba class (gosh did I feel ridiculous doing that), and a chance to exhaust embarrass myself with 999 other maniacs for a mile.

And a lovely finishers medal.

Here's a video of the madness:

And the Scottish holiday-insanity doesn't stop here.  Next on the agenda: The New Years Loony Dook!
