The Dun Laoghaire Christmas Festival runs between November 30-January 1 and includes a ‘Santa Hat world record’ attempt for Barnardo’s on December 21.
The current record stands at 872 santa hat wearers (assembled in America in 2010) which doesn’t sound completely unbeatable, in fairness. Enrolments here.
