do you know about the christmas krampus?

lately there has been a lot of krampus (please say this the correct way and that would be "krampoose") talk around here. up until a week ago i had never heard of the christmas krampus before. apparently he's been around for a long time, originating in austria. anyway the short story is that santa gives presents to the good children and the christmas krampus kidnaps the bad children and takes them away, to eat them maybe? that's some pretty scary shit to a little kid. which is exactly why we have been using krampus as leverage here in the anderson household. such as.."fiona, krampus is watching" or "fiona, do we need to call krampus??!!" to which we are met with a bewildered "no".
to this day in parts of europe krampus day is a big deal and there are all kinds of krampus costume contests.



so anyway...be good and don't make me call the krampus! merry merry lovers!!

Rather devilish isn't he, that Krampus? The second to last kind of resembles Vincent Price.

KRAMPUS! My friend told me about him a couple weeks ago and ever since I swear I've been having nightmare after nightmare. The pictures are super scary but you HAVE to look up the youtube videos. They're totally terrifying.

I'm shocked my British mom has never threatened me with this before!

Eddie Krampus- PERFECT!! I have no love for his tired, blah designs.

Being good to avoid being kidnapped and eaten by Krampus is way more motivation than being good to avoid receiving coal for Christmas. Americans water all the good stories down. This is some scary shit. I'm going to tell my nieces and nephews and then let their parents deal with their horror. hee hee.

Im dying! That Eddie as Krampus is so funny... but you should have chose the one where he is standing in Kathy Lee's foyer with the little plaid ball xmas tree. He doesnt even need your doodles for that one! His krampusness is kinda why I like him though...
