Santa Crawl 2006

December 2006 marked the founding year for Santa chaos in Hampton Roads in the form of "Santa Crawl." For the first time Santa made a welcomed and celebrated appearance along Granby Street in Norfolk, and in visible numbers. Beginning with just a small core group of Santas, through the night the group grew to 30+ participants. And while such a showing is not an original idea in the context of the United States, or the world, for that matter, it was a first for the Tidewater area. Santa truly enjoyed celebrity status on this night. He would definitely have to return.

Evidence we were first.

Original (Official) Norfolk Santa Crawl poem/lyrics:

You better go out,
You better show thigh,
You better drink stout
And I'm telling you why
Santa Crawl is coming downtown

We're making our list,
Checking it twice.
Gonna find elves who're naughty, not nice
Santa Crawl is coming downtown.

We see how you are dancing,
We like to see you shake.
We like if you are bad not good
So be bad for Santa's sake.

You better go out,
You better show thigh,
You drink stout
And I'm telling you why
Santa Crawl is coming downtown.
