Into It: Dark Christmas

Postcard featuring Krampus, a goat-like creature who snatches up children to eat.

Christmas celebrations are not all light and warm as we travel around the world.

Christmas in America is warm and fuzzy, stuffed with Santa, reindeer and helpful elves. We get little exposure to the more sinister, old-world European characters, a host of demonic bogeymen that have been adopted into the Christian tradition over time.
