Resulting Resolutions

New Year's is a time when everyone decides to hit their metaphorical reset buttons in hopes of reliving the previous year without their many massive mistakes that deterred them from the realization of their promises, hopes, and dreams. January (especially the first couple of weeks) is a period of confidence, determination, and perseverance. The third week of January through December 31st is when reality kicks in and all those goals go out the window.

This year one of my resolutions will be to influence others to be better people and to help them achieve a less stressful life. I shall start by scaring the shit out of children into obedience:

"In some European countries, an evil goat-horned spirit is said to accompany Santa Claus on Christmas day, punishing little children. This demon is called the Krampus, and he haunts the Christmases of children in Austria, southern Germany, Switzerland, and northern Italy. According to the legend, the Krampus would originally ride with St. Nick on his worldwide gift-giving tour. Santa would give children presents...and the Krampus would beat them. "

Beware! Beware! Beware of the Krampy Krampus! (To learn more, click the link right underneath the picture).

Two birds, one stone. Children shall act less bratty and their progenitors less stressed.

Well, there you go. Something to keep in mind for the next 12 months. To all the parents learning about this demon for the first time, you're welcome!


  1. Any excuse to beat a child is good enough for me. Cheers to the Krampus!

  2. a very krampy kristmas to you!

  3. I think Krampus looks rather bear-like in that picture.

  4. I already broke a quarter of my resolutions for this year lol.
    Hope you guys had better luck with it.
    Anyway happy new year dude, following!

  5. Interesting writing on this blog :) I like it :)

  6. I don't believe in Christ or Santa, but I've had my ass kicked during Christmas enough times to believe in Krampus!

  7. I think the world would be a lot better with more of Mr. Krampus for some bratty little kids.
