'Tis the season to be spooky

I found this meme on Facebook and I thought I had to share it. I thought it was so funny. It is also a bit true: so many people, too many people, think of Christmastime as this sickeningly sweet holiday, with sweet music and sweet candy cane and sweet feel good Christmas movies. And then there are people like me who know that Christmas has a darker side and embrace it. And thus, here's Krampus, folkloric character from this dark side of the season. 'Tis the season to be spooky, it was about time he showed up on this blog, even on a silly meme. I wish I had known about him as a child.
