He's all the rage today in America, thanks once again to Hollywood's release of the movie Krampus that, not surprisingly, couches the ancient pagan spirit in a cloud of evil and horror. But that's Hollywood's take on nearly everything Pagan. There is actually much more to Krampus than meets the media's eye. Krampus has been a companion of St. Nicholas for centuries, providing a vivid reminder to all who believe that there are consequences to both good and bad behavior. Santa and Krampus dispense both. And, depending on how bad you have been, Krampus might do a little more than just leave a lump of coal in your stocking.
