Strange Christmas

クリスマスが近づきなんとな〜くワクワクする今日この頃。
せっかくなので、この季節にちなんだコラムをご紹介しますね。

コラム後半に登場する「Krampus」は、wikipediaによると、”ヨーロッパ中部の伝説の生物であり、良い子供にプレゼントを配る聖ニコラウスと対照的に、悪い子供に警告し罰を与えると信じられている” のだそうです。悪い子は、「Krampus」にさらわれてしまうようです。。要注意!

In the old song “Santa Clause is Coming Tonight” the lyrics say:

He’s making a list and checking it twice,
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town!
He sees you when you’re sleeping,
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows when you’ve been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

It make Santa sound a little scary, don’t you think!? Santa is always watching the children to decide who has been good and who has been bad. All the children who get on his “bad” list don’t get any presents that year, instead all they get is rocks of coal.

That sounds bad enough! But have you ever heard of Krampus? Santa use to have an evil partner who would beat the bad children with a branch, or sometimes kidnap them!

So everyone be good this year and watch out for Krampus!!
