Krampus: Santa’s traveling companion.
Merry Christmas! Make sure you make the good list or you will get stuffed in a bag and dragged away to a lair and possibly eaten.
With the way kids behave today maybe we should bring back the story of Krampus. There is some pretty weird / creepy shit people used to believe out there. I guess there is still some pretty weird stuff people believe today (I’m looking at you Tom Cruise) too but that is a different post…some day.
Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in Alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies Saint 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.
