Krampus, the Christmas Devil

Krampus, the Christmas Devil, definitely puts a horrific spin on Christmas.

Derived from krampen (German for claw), Krampus is St. Nick’s “helpful” companion, who either gives children coal or hauls them away into a dark forest, or Hell, in a burlap sack.

This demonic fellow, with his cloven hooves, goat horns, and pointed tongue, arrives on Krampusnacht, or Krampus Night, to hand out coal and ruten (bundles of birch branches) to naughty children.

And next year, I REALLY want to send out “Greetings from the Krampus” cards:
