The Monsters of Christmas

This is primarily for Kyle as we've been exchanging posts about Krampus.  Atlas Obscura has a post on Monsters of Christmas including Krampus, Mari Lwyd, La Befana and Baboushka, Perchta, Straggele, The Tomten, Belsnickel, Pere Fouettard, Gryla, The Yule Lads including peg-legged Sheep Cote Clog (not to mention the horribly evil Sausage Swiper - Swiper, no swiping!), and The Yule Cat.

Atlas Obscura is great if you're like me and want to learn about Leprechaun museums (where they have Leprechaun lore, not as in it's run by Leprechauns) and strange statues.  Just my sort of thing.
