Christmas Krampus

Christmas is coming right around the corner. There will be joy and laughs along with the old legends of Santa coming down the chimney to give you gifts. But there’s an even darker side to this story with a new movie of the legend coming out for it.

That’s right, it’s Krampus.

What was Krampus? Well he was a tall, dark figure with goat horns, the tongue of a snake, and the eyes of a dragon. He had a tall humanoid look and dark fur. His purpose was to take all the naughty children that were behaving badly during the year.

This legends originated in Old Christian region where parents used Krampus as a way to keep their children in line. Although he is also found in some Greek lore. Krampus is also known in places like over Germany. There are also places where he is known only as a creature who gave the children a huge beating instead of the eternal abyss.
