Americans have only recently become familiar with the European Christmas demon known as Krampus. Where did such a terrifying goblin come from, and how did he become associated with Christmas?
Our friends at Today I Found Out have the story of how Krampus arose hundreds of years ago from the dark forests of Bavaria to invade other nations. The customs surrounding the Krampus tradition differ from country to country. Here in America, we make horror movies out of such legends. -Thanks, Daven!
