Merry-Krampus

Santa is a sweet, jolly guy with rosy cheeks and a sack full of presents. Krampus is — well, Krampus is not like that.

Krampus

Ah, Krampus. He’s just what you need if all the jingle bells and holly jolly are beginning to make you want to fa-la-la your way under a rock. If you’re unfamiliar, Krampus is basically the anti-Santa in traditional Alpine lore. He looks rather devilish and beastly and behaves as such. While Santa brings gifts for all the good boys and girls, Krampus brings coal and other punishments to all of the naughty ones. So it’s fitting that just across the way from Baltimore’s much beloved Miracle on 34th Street lies Bazaar—the impeccably curated curiosity shop. Where else in town would Krampus pick for his local HQ?

Krampus

catch of the day fish (2)And now, for something entirely different. If all these jingling jingle bells and holly jolly St. Nick impersonators are getting you down (or even if they’re not), it might be a good time for a little change of pace re: our holiday celebrations. Have your little ones not been the definition of “nice” for the entire last year? Only exhibiting their best behavior when Santa comes out of his rest-of-the-year hibernation? Might be time to put a little good-natured fear of the Krampus into them this weekend.
