I wrote an article a couple of years ago called “The Dark Side of Christmas”, which explained the relationship between Saint Nicholas and his demon side-kick Krampus. I am a lover of vintage Christmas Cards but couldn’t help but notice the evolution of Krampus on these said cards, from child eating Christmas Demon, to sexy ladies man, to sexy X-mas Imp (yeah an… Elf).
Over a short period of time, some of the Germanic Christmas Cards dropped St. Nick and displayed a solo Krampus .
Not very long after, Krampus seems to have stopped eating and punishing bad children, and took on a more salacious interest in women. And I also noticed that Krampus is no longer bound in chains,(suggesting freedom from St. Nick).
These were some sexy Christmas holiday cards indeed!
However their was one underlining problem. Krumpus was still depicted in his demon form, associated with torturing and eating children.
So suddenly Krampus transformed into a holiday imp/elf to gloss over the fact that he was Santa’s demon attack dog on misbehaved children.
Well I suppose women have a bit of devilish sexy plans on their minds for Christmas!
Merry Happy Sexy Christmas to you my dear!
