Krampusnacht by Nicolas Olivo
Every once in a while I come across a really good Christmas story. One that is entertaining yet different so today I would like to share one of those “good-but-different” kind of story with you.
Krampusnacht tells us that while Santa is giving the good kids gifts there is a Demon named Krampus who takes care of the bad kids. Yes, you read that right... the Demon takes the bad kids to Hell while the good kids get gifts. I don't know about you but my goal was to be on the good list – always.
There are three short stories that are interconnected in this collection. And I like the way Mr. Olivo gives us a different view of a particular scene that unfolds in Krampusnacht – it's pretty cool actually.
Krampusnacht is the story about how Gearstripper saved Christmas.
Pause shows us what's going one behind the scenes. You have to make sure to read this one after Krampusnacht.
Mrs. Rita has to make a decision that will have major consequences and repercussions. This answers the most important question of all.
