Printeresting wants to wish all of you happy holidays!

And please enjoy these images of some vintage lithographic postcards depicting the Krampus. While this forgotten holiday tradition has been making a bit of comeback this past year, for those of you not familiar read on, (via wikipedia (source of all blog-worthy facts):

The Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas during theChristmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children.

Cheers!
