Hundreds of Santas made their annual pilgrimage to the National Mall for Santarchy 2013. A goofy rite of Christmas, people dressed up as Santa Clause or an elf or related Christmas characters. Here are a few photos:

The sauntering Santas started off strong, but a bomb scare closed off the blocks around the White House, preventing the traditional route. And once the afternoon rain started, Santas were scattered across the city.
