Welcome to our Final Four ... and a Merry Winter Solstice to you all! Did you get up in the wee hours to see the eclipse? We decided to have a snowstorm, so that scotched those plans!
Isn't this a nice illustration for the day? Makes a lovely wallpaper for your computer (hint, hint)! It's from the Winter, 1931 issue of the Women's Home Companion magazine ... sweet! Click on the illustration for a nice BIG copy!
With only a few days left, I did promise we'd get back to our old buddy Krampus, so today is his day to shine. First, some cool footage from a Krampus Parade over in Europe:
Next, a neat Krampus story called 'The Long Yuletide War' - just the thing for a bedtime story on these long winter nights!
Finally, STOP whatever you're doing and go click on this NOW! It's 'Werner Herzog's "Twas the Night Before Christmas" ... a Tale of Existential Terror!" Yes, our boy Krampus is in there, too! :)
Tomorrow: our next-to-last entry in the '13 Strangest Christmas Shorts' competition and a lot of last-minute craziness - see you!
