The Christmas Devil
Plenty of things have a good and evil element to it, so why should Christmas be any different? Though you may think Ebenezer Scrooge to be the malevolent holiday entity we’re speaking of, the grumpy old gent has nothing on Krampus. It’s half-goat, half-demonic and all business. Krampus is best known as the Christmas Devil, a grotesquely demonic figure with horns and hooved feet that doesn’t bring good tidings to you and your kin. Krampus is derived from the German Krampen, meaning claw, and is believed to be the son of Hel in Norse mythology.
