I thought I'd do something a little different this week, though it's certainly creepy and still has a lot to do with Santa. I've been a bit obsessed this year with the story of Krampus.
According to Wiki... I mean legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas during the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children. When the Krampus finds a particularly naughty child, it stuffs the child in its sack and carries the frightened child away to its lair, presumably to devour for its Christmas dinner.
See video demonstration below, by that bitter bastard Anthony Bourdain.
Let's further explore Krampus in action, shall we?
For your further enjoyment, check out this piece on Krampus as featured on NPR. And you'd better be good for goodness sake.
