Things get pretty strange around here for the holidays.
We love Christmas here at Cult of Weird. The ancient folklore and mysticism from which many modern day holiday traditions have evolved are full of oddities and historical curiosities. From Krampus, the Christmas devil who is responsible for punishing naughty children and the bones of St. Nicholas that ooze an oily substance renown for it’s healing properties, to a cave-dwelling Santa and creepy vintage Santa photos, there is no shortage of yuletide weirdness.
