Spread the love

This weeks episode we will discuss the Christmas Demon Krampus, Krampus is a demon said to be the son of the Norse Goddess Hel. Krampus himself historically comes around the night of December 5, tagging along with St. Nicholas. He visits houses all night with his saintly pal. While St. Nick is on hand to put candy in the shoes of good kids and birch twigs in the shoes of the bad, Krampus’ particular specialty is punishing naughty children. Legend has it that throughout the Christmas season, misbehaved kids are beaten with birch branches or can disappear, stuffed into Krampus’ sack and hauled off to his lair to be tortured or eaten. So sit back and relax as we discuss the darker side of Christmas and it’s favorite black sheep of the family, Krampus.
