It’s that time of year! By which I mean Krampusnacht.
And if you don’t know who Krampus is…SIGH. Here: This will help. It really pains me that there are so many amazing Christmas monsters out there (No, seriously, you have no idea. There are loads) and yet people really aren’t aware of it. While I’m still working on my campaigns for some of the others, I can totally help celebrate today.
If you didn’t click the link, basically in certain parts of Europe, Krampus is Santa’s malevolent helper who punishes the bad kids, sometimes by beating them, other times by putting them in his sack and dragging them to Hell, usually on the day before St. Nicholaus’s feast day. So,you know, festive. Basically he was the precursor to the whole coal in your stocking deal.
To celebrate today, feel free to check out an old flash/in progress bit that I’ll probably finish at some point: Krampus Waits.
And, y’know, be good and all of that, because you never know who’s going to come knocking on your door this time of year…
