This old postcard has no information on it. Just a Czechoslovakian comment on the front and a JKO trademark on the back. My wife found this on the internet. I'm still researching as I go. If anyone has information please feel free to comment. thanks.

oh, and BOO!

Krampus v. Devil

These are old die-cuts are from Austria. Found on Ebay. Year unknown. This is an unusual depiction of the Krampus. I have never seen one where he is holding a trident or weapon of any sort. The reason that this is definitely a Krampus and not the Christian devil, is that he also has a bundle of sticks and his long tongue is sticking out. Not that the devil doesn't stick his tongue out on occasion.
I will say this: Satan does have more control over his grooming. Krampus is a filthy bugger.
