Although the holiday season is only beginning to get ramped up with two weeks before jolly ol' Saint Nick arrives, we're sure some of you have already had your fill of the Christmas season. Well, before you grab your dog, Max, and go looting the Who Village, let us introduce you to another Christmas tradition that might lift your holiday spirit a bit...say hello to Krampus.
It's that time of year again, when random strangers stand on your front lawn singing and people actually hope to hear a weird fat guy climbing down their chimney. At any other time of the year, we call that trespassing and breaking and entering, but for one special day we call it Christmas. But there is a darker side to Christmas, when the night is stalked by a fearsome beast.
With Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale just opening in American theaters and an evil St. Nicholas terrorizing theaters in the Netherlands, now is a good time to give some love to Santa's monstrous Eastern European punisher of naughty children, Krampus.
