Icelandic Christmas Cat Eats Kids! — 8 Comments

  1. Communal repression of naughty children. There is of course coal in the stocking here in the US (and abroad I assume?). Another one of these is the Krampus. From Wikipedia.org:

    “Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Yule season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus is said to capture particularly naughty children in his sack and carry them away to his lair.”

    Krampus was recently featured on American Dad, an American cartoon for grownups. I wish they would of done the Yule Cat. I think I’ll use the Yule Cat on the kids this year.

    Thanks! This was very interesting read. I think we should all share it on Google+, Facebook, etc.
