Subtlety has taken a holiday.

With the campaign for a new Father Christmas underway, a new contender has thrown his hoof into the ring: Krampus.

The legendary Christmas demon served for many years as a bondaged slave to St. Nicholas[1], only being granted just enough liberty to dish out punishments to the naughty. However, with St. Nick now perished, the charismatic native of Austria is now free to persue whatever mischievous career he so desires, and it seems he has his eyes on his former master's job.

Carrying a bundle of sticks as his symbol, the horned one spoke before a howling crowd of otherworldly monsters in an ancient goat tongue[2]:


Krampus, once considered a fringe holiday icon, has grown in popularity over the past few years thanks to increasing media attention. A sudden spike in movies, television, books and merchandise dedicated to the Yuletide boogeyman have given him a certain celebrity that could mean a viable shot at becoming the new Christmas icon. So far Krampus is mostly earning grassroots support from pagans who want to reclaim the solstice from Christianity, along with Satanists, metalheads, your everyday Scrooges and/or grinches, and teenagers who think their mom's fluffy holiday spirit is a major buzzkill to their inner turmoil, GOD.

The Vatican is not exactly thrilled with Krampus' attempt to 'spoil' the election, but Krampus insists that his policies of fear and torture are consistent with the history of the Catholic Church.
