Have yourself a creepy little Christmas as we talk about the most Satanic of holiday spirits, Krampus. This Eastern European figure speaks to a more sinister side of the holiday, appealing to Satanists as well as those tired of saccharine celebrations this time of year. Simone, Daniel, and Tabitha discuss Krampus's origins, how he evokes the darkness of the winter months, and why he's surged in popularity in the United States in the past few years. (And pay attention, there's a quiz at the end!) Also, Chicago gets the gift of religious pluralism for the holidays, and Satanic Bay Area gets ready to countdown to Year Zero.
