“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

I remember when I was a child,I used to get so scared the night before Christmas,i'd get ready for bed, set out a plate of cookies,cover my head with the blanket,all the while trying to fight this feeling of foreboding....I didnt know what it was that spooked me so much,maybe because there was large red suited stranger due to arrive...maybe I was afraid I'd been bad and I wasnt going to get gifts....I couldnt explain why I was so frightened and had been increasingly so all that month.
Well a couple of days ago I read about this horrible creature called Krampus,he is the "counterpart" of St. Nicholas,while St.Nick gives out goodies to the good boys and girls, Krampas on the other hand,deals with the bad ones.He carries a switch to whip them with,and a basket on his back to carry them off to Hell. He also has coal to put in the stockings of children that didnt commit too terrible a misdeed.
It all makse sense now!I guess there's still time to rectify our behavior so we wont get a visit from Krampus...less than six months till Christmas....shudder!
