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!
