Now in its ninth year, 2008's event was held at Callahan's in the Arena District. The party was packed with revelers basking in the holiday spirit, but there was no settling down for a long winter's nap for those enjoying the drinks and dancing. For outside there arose such a clatter! Who should appear, but about a dozen people dressed as Jolly Old St. Nick to add to the cheer.
