Christmas Eve

Amazingly I find myself with about one free hour between Christmas Eve tasks! And so....here are some great vintage images for the day......featuring the European tradition of the Krampus! (with a twist!) The Krampus is akin to the German "Belsnickel" (made famous in an episode of "The Office" with Dwight Shrute extolling the virtues of the tradition.)

And although I've used the following image before, lest anyone accuse me of not keeping "Christ" in "Christmas", here's an interesting painting by surrealist master, Max Ernst:


MERRY CHRISTMAS! to all of my loyal readers and participants!
