San Antonio Is Having A 'Christmas Comic-Con' This Winter With Jack Skellington As Santa

We've all heard of the annual Comic-Con in San Diego, California, but what we're not so familiar with is a Christmas Comic-Con, located in none other than San Antonio, Texas.  San Antonio's Nerdtacular Christmas Comic-Con will be in the city next month, and all of your favorite Christmas movie characters will be there.

Being unfamiliar with a Christmas Comic-Con is completely understandable, but after this year, you'll be looking forward to it year after year! Santa Claus is coming to town and so are many more of our favorite fictional holiday characters.

Starting on Saturday, December 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nerdtacular is hosting a one-of-a-kind Christmas Comic-Con. 

The convention will go on until Sunday, December 8 and this day's festivities will also be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Two whole days to meet all of your favorite people!

Christmas Comic-Con is totally free to enjoy, and so is the parking when you arrive. What's the saying? If it's for free, it's for me!

Santa Jack (Skellington) will be at the convention to take Christmas card photos with, the type you'll definitely want to send out to all of your relatives. 

Krampus, various characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Santa Claus, and more will also be there for you to take some more casual photos with.

You'll be able to participate in a variety of costume contests while there and could leave with much more than you arrived with. Just be sure to have one of the coolest costumes of all!

You can find more info about Nerdtacular Christmas Comic-Con on Nerdtacular's official Facebook page.
