When someone asked Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday if she would “pass a law stopping SantaCon,” she hatched a brilliant idea: GrinchCon.

If you’re a city-dweller, you probably know all about SantaCon. Santa-dressed revelers spend an entire day running amok through the streets, drunk and unconcerned about what the real Santa Claus would think of their naughty behavior.

GrinchCon, then, is the chill alternative. It’s quiet time. Skip the bar crawl, do the tea and/or coffee crawl instead. Escape the roaring din when an army of Santas takes to the streets.

I’m not sure, but maybe we can look into establishing GrinchCon – a tea + coffee crawl where people can spread peace and quiet everywhere they go 😇

A great response and a great idea, especially since legislating SantaCon isn’t really possible. It’s good general advice, too: when the loud world outside gets to be too much, stay at home or find a quiet place to just exist for a while.

Unsurprisingly for the neverending and so-very-extra 2018, lots of people seemed into the idea of a GrinchCon. (There were also plenty of MAGAs on hand to bash the young politician, because of reasons.)

This is a good response, React against something annoying by creating sensible in its place.

Maybe AOC is on to something here. Sign me the hell up for GrinchCon 2019.
