Weird World Weekly #50 – The Krampus Legend

Play

Santa Claus has long been the symbol of Christmas, bringing joy and presents to all the good girls and boys. But if you are child in Germany, Austria, and other parts of the Alps region, there may be something much more dark, mischievous, and grumpy hidden in the shadows next to dear old St. Nick. That something is Krampus, the Christmas demon.

On this special holiday episode of Weird World Weekly Matt and Dave will explore the legend of Krampus and discover why this myth endures to this day.
