Merry Krampus Night is a spoof of the Clement C. Moore classic The Night Before Christmas, but instead of waiting for Santa to come and give presents, party guests are waiting for Krampus, the Christmas demon, to come and play guitar in their goth band. Krampus is known throughout Eastern Europe as the horned Christmas demon who steals naughty children and puts them in his giant basket. It’s a horrific practice, and terrifying to all children who experience it. But why, exactly, does Krampus do this? What led him to such extremes?Merry Krampus Night posits that Krampus has feelings, too. Poor Krampus, who plays the blues in this story, sings out his woes to terrified and delighted party guests in a remote Edward Gorey-esque house on the fifth of December. The problem: Krampus is lonely. He has to kidnap children just to have some company during the holidays. His methods may be malicious, but his intentions are – actually, his intentions are really, really bad.
