The monster who punishes children for Christmas, Krampus, is part of an Alpine folklore which, still to this day is well-known in many European countries. Lately, Americans have become aware of this evil counterpart of Father Christmas. One cultural result of this is the family-friendly horror film (if that is a thing), Krampus.

Happy Holidays to our listeners! The Flick Lab will now take a break and will return revamped on February 4th, 2021.
