ELF PROTEST The Saturday before Santacide, elves with green and red signs and hats protested throughout the streets of Northampton chanting, “We are the 99%” and “Santa is a stinker” and other mild curses aimed at Chris Kringle. It was all in good fun and publicity.  Thank you to our Marching Elves: Mark Bodah, Steph Gerolimoatos, The Angels, The Braidmans, The Quinns, The Teffers, The Sheliesels

And our Rachel Braidman (Holly) dressed up and ran the Hot Chocolate Run to benefit Safe Passage
