Title: The Yule Lord
Origin: Alpine Austria
I know my Demons and Shit series was meant for the April A to Z Challenge last year, but this seems like a good time to revisit it, with Krampusnacht in just a few days and my “K” demon being the next on the list. When I was first introduced, Krampus was described to me as the anti-Santa. I was then invited to read a novel titled Krampus: The Yule Lord, by Brom, and to watch the film Krampus, wherein Krampus invades a family and viciously murders the family living inside because they are, put simply terrible people. Krampus originated from Alpine Austria (History.com), and his sole function is to frighten children into behaving by throwing them in saicks and beating them with switches. Gotta love him!
