Krampus. Weird, right? I know there's a scary movie coming out - not sure that I'll be watching it - but I had fun looking at others' renditions and doing a bit of research to make up my own version.
Supposedly, as Santa Claus is making a list and checking it twice, so is Krampus. He comes to find naughty children, beats them with birch branches, rattles chains to frighten them, and steals them away in his basket. He has at least one hoof, wears bells, grows horns, and "has a lolling tongue," or so my research said.
All I know is, if I had known about this character as a child, I wouldn't have been dreaming of sugarplums...so I did my best. Is he scary? Or just weird? I'm hoping for the latter.
