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. Participants dress up in seasonal costumes and knock back drinks at more than 40 bars in the area while indulging in nonsensical traditions like cereal shots and sticker exchanges. For most, it's a fun day on the town, but TBOX has a history of violence, property destruction and general debauchery, which explains why security at the event was TRIPLED last year. Be safe and don't do anything dumb.
