Krampus Is Coming To Town

krampus

Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Christmas season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus is said to capture particularly naughty children in his sack and carry them away to his lair.

Man the Germans really are a stern people.
Santa Claus may get all the good press but I think it’s past time we started showing some love to Krampus because sometimes the threat of a lump of coal is not enough to keep kids in line and you need the threat of a demon from hell with a penchant for corporal punishment to do the job.
