The Fright Before Christmas: Surviving Krampus & Other Yuletide Monsters delves into the folklore of Krampus and his friends with the elf-like Tomten and the goblinesque Karakoncolas. The Belsnickel is ready to hit us with his switch of sticks and Gryla may drag you back to her mountain lair. These are just a few of the yuletide beasties coming for us in The Fright Before Christmas in the hope they can save us from ourselves.
Jeff Belanger joins Spirit Switchboard host Kerrilynn Shellhorn today to tell us about these scary creatures, their history, our efforts to revive them, and why we need them more than ever right now!
