A different take on the holiday

I first learned about the Krampus from a friend who grew up in Germany. In some German-speaking countries, monsters come for naughty children, and Santa isn’t such a sweetheart. As a child, my friend found the holidays rather frightening.

We are now in the “angels we have heard on high tell us to go out and buy” season, so I thought I would share this delightful custom. Have your kids watch the cartoon!!
