In Britain, the weekend before Christmas is traditionally a celebratory occasion and revelers are out in full force, drinking and partying. In preparation for this time, a centre for drunks was set up in Soho at a cost of $810 000 (£500 000) to the government.

According to tales, “Black Piet” gets his complexion from being either Spanish Moor or as a result of getting covered in soot while going down a chimney. Here are some of the Instagrams of this week’s celebrations!
