Krampus rampant design by James G. Mundie:

While creating a label for a special Krampus-themed ale of my own concoction, I decided to also use the design for paper lanterns (in Krampus's traditional colors of red and black) to be displayed in my home on Krampusnacht (December 6th) and during the first annual Krampuslauf Philadelphia. However, when I shared the design with some friends, the reaction was so overwhelmingly enthusiastic that I decided to make prints available, too. The following year, I turned the second lantern design — a Krampus rampant with a child in his basket — into a second print (and now available as a t-shirt!).

For those unfamiliar with Krampus, he is a goat-like horned devil with a long red tongue traditionally associated with St. Nicholas — however, this kinky Germanic yuletide spirit's folklore tradition predates the Christian era. The people of Europe's alpine regions had been marking the annual arrival of Krampus for many centuries before the concept of Christmas came along, and well before a certain former bishop of Turkey stole the spotlight. Traditionally, Krampus serves to punish naughty children by whipping them with switches or tossing them in icy rivers. Krampus is the “bad cop” to St. Nick's “good cop”.

This large professionally printed poster is perfect for the naughty child (of any age) on your holiday list. Season's beatings!

You may now purchase one or more (in either design or both) for your very own through Etsy.
