Krampus: I have a switch with which to beat naughty children!
Woman: Same.
Krampus: I haul them off in my barrel!
Woman: I give them The Stare until they slink off wheresoever I dictate on their own.
Krampus: I have a really long tongue.
Woman: I have a very short fuse.
Krampus: But I have a terrifying visage!
Woman: Like this? **Stare**
Krampus: Uh...
Woman: **Stare**
Krampus: So...I'll just let you get on with it, then?
Woman: That would be best.

I'm digging out my DVDs of Grimm to watch "Twelve Days of Krampus" where he sacks up delinquent teens. Someone has to do something about 'em. :evil

Thanks! He's different from the usual. He was my Christmas splurge ($14.99 on Amazon)



Awesome knitted Krampus!

Definitely worth the splurge!

Thanks! :) I cobbled him together from a vague idea I had. *g*

AW has single-handedly made me glad to see Krampus.

I mean, he's still really freaky to me. But now I'm oddly pleased to see him pop up, too.

Now all I need is to see the UFOs and it will truly feel like Christmas.

I actually saw Krampus and Saint Nicholas, on the 5-th at night, in Luxemburg, back in 1999. They went together, appropriately dressed, on the streets of the old town. I think I saw them in Belgium too, but I don't remember for sure. The Luxemburg one I am positive!

Ah, here's Krampus hauling naughty children off. Yep, good old-school terrorizing.

Does AW's admin have enough photos to do an all-Krampus-and-UFOs December? The Mari Lwyd could be in there too. I think they should make a festive project of it.

I've got PMs complaining about Krampus images, and PMs complaining about Hanukkah images.

I don't think I could take the stress of people going o_O at the Mari Lwyd.

I get it a few people are offended by anything not-Christian in their POVs (even though a lot of things are Christian symbols in other countries), but Hanukkah? That has wrong connotations, especially at this time in US history.

Good grief. Sending PMs to complain about...People really need to have a good long think about this.

Pretty much my reaction, though mine was slightly more, "WTF is wrong with people?!?!" in nature.
