Today’s the fifth, and if you are like me, you’ve probably forgotten or even never heard of the fact that it’s the official Krampus day. Krampus, yet another one of St.Nicholas’ helpers, traditionally beats up little children who didn’t behave.
Fortunately, even cruel whipping can be turned into fun (apart from the, uh, rather obvious, but wholly unsuitable practice for children), by wrapping it all up in tinfoil.
I got this Krampus pictured above from a co-worker today. Which I hope is merely a gesture of demonstrating my being integrated into the office-society and not an indicator of how much I deserve a whipping.
