For one day each December, the Twelve Bars of Christmas (better known as TBOX) pub crawl takes over Wrigleyville, bringing the drunken stupidity of the summer months into the holiday season. More than 40 bars throughout the neighborhood participate in the booze-soaked revelry, as participants in festive garb knock back drinks while indulging in nonsensical traditions like cereal shots and sticker exchanges. While it's a fun day on the town for most, TBOX has a history of violence, property destruction and general debauchery, which explains the heavy security presence. If you must go, be safe and don't do anything dumb.
