The Christmas demon that every house needs

The Christmas demon that every house needs December 2, 2016

The always interesting Sick Pilgrim on Patheos has a different take on a favorite Christmas pastime, courtesy of European folklore.  It looks like a good time, so go over there and read through the fun.  Leave it to Europe to have a goat-demon come by and punish bad kids who don’t deserve gifts from St. Nick.  But then Christmas was never supposed to be about fuzzy reindeer and cute little snowmen.  It can be brutal, if you read the source material.  After all, Christmas is about the real world, not the imaginary one hoisted on us by Saints Macy and Woolworth.
