CINCINNATI — You could spend an ordinary December afternoon in downtown Cincinnati, drifting from restaurant to restaurant, eating and drinking, all in the name of the Christmas spirit and a good cause.
Or you could don the costume of the Jolly Old Elf and join an estimated 5,000 Santas for some holiday revelry.
Cincinnati Santacon, on Dec. 9 this year, is an annual event that raises money for the Cure Starts Now Foundation, an organization devoted to fighting pediatric brain cancer.
One of 60 Santacons across the U.S., the Cincinnati event has grown exponentially, according to an organizer who wanted to be identified only as “Kris Kringle.”
“We had 27 Santas the first year,” he said. “Then 85, then 250. Last year, we had 2,000 Santas. This year, we’re expecting 5,000. For the participating bars downtown, it will be their second-biggest night of the year.”
“Kringle” said many of the Santas arrive with groups of similarly attired friends.
“The average group is about seven Santas,” he said.
To participate, prospective Santas simply have to register at the Cincinnati Santacon website. You will pay $10, which goes to the Cure Starts Now, for your wristband.
Once you register, you will receive an email that includes a list of participating bars and a road map. The initial meeting place is Jack Cincinnati Casino at noon. From there, you will take one of two official routes — the North Pole, which runs through Over-the-Rhine, or the South Pole, which runs through the Banks.
The website also includes a tip sheet for being Santa, which includes hints on how to keep your beard clean, how to interact with the kiddos (don’t put parents in a bind by promising little Johnny that he’ll definitely get that new Xbox this year), and generally how to behave.
HOW TO GO
WHAT: Cincinnati Santacon
WHERE: Begins at Jack Cincinnati Casino, 1000 Broadway St., Cincinnati
WHEN: Noon Dec. 9

NEW YORK — While promoting her show “Grace and Frankie” with co-star Lily Tomlin, actress and activist Jane Fonda revealed she underwent surgery to have cancer removed.
Fonda was doing an interview for Build, a live interview series, Monday and mentioned the surgery as why she had a bandage on her lower lip.
“I just want to explain the bandage. I just had a cancer taken from my lip,” she said. “I thought it was going to heal in time before I came (for the interview). It’s fine. I just wanted to explain it. I don’t normally go around like this.”
“The world is falling apart. What’s a lip?” Fonda joked when praised by the interviewer for still showing up to face the press.
Fonda and Tomlin went on to discuss their Netflix show, how they do and don’t resemble their characters, the importance of social activism and other topics during the lively interview, which can be watched in full on the Build Series website.
On Tuesday, Fonda quickly made mention of the procedure during a “Today” show appearance with Tomlin.
“I had a little cancer,” she said, waving her hand.
While posing for pictures during press rounds, Fonda covered her mouth, saying on Instagram, “I’ve found a clever way to disguise my lip bandages from removal of cancer.”

Kardashian West confirmed the news on her official website.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.

MIAMI — Enrique Iglesias is taking a break from his ulta-private life to share the first photo of one of his twins with the world, and so is his rumored wife, retired tennis star Anna Kournikova.
E! News reported that the singer, who welcomed twins with Kournikova in December, shared the first photo of himself snuggling one of the babies on social media on Instagram with the caption, “My Sunshine.”
Kournivoca posted a similar photo an hour later on her Instagram page with the same caption. In the image, she cradles one of her babies in her hands and gives a kiss.
The couple kept Kournikova’s pregnancy a secret from the public for the duration until they welcomed the babies, a boy and a girl, late last year. According to TMZ, the twins were reportedly named Nicholas and Lucy.
Iglesias and Kournikova started dating in 2001 when the retired tennis star appeared as his love interest in the music video for his hit single “Escape.”
