Horror Conspiracy Theories: Santa Claus and Krampus are the Same Person by Kenzie Kordic
Greetings Horror Addicts!
I’m back once again with another horror conspiracy theory. This time though, it isn’t a movie, but a conspiracy about lore. With the holidays approaching quickly, I thought it would be cool to talk about a holiday themed horror conspiracy. I truly believe that Santa Claus and Krampus are the same person, and trust me, I’ll tell you why. Make sure to let me know if you agree or disagree because I love debating.
Santa Claus and Krampus are the same people for a few different reasons.
Santa knows if you’re naughty or nice
Santa is supposed to be the only one who has access to the list where all the good and bad little boys and girls are written down each year. I believe that instead of leaving coal in the bad children’s stockings, he goes to the children’s house and punishes the family with either torture, murder, or other dubious things.
Krampus has gotten popular within the past few years
Santa, I’m sad to say it, is a dying legend. More and more kids these days aren’t so believing in him and he’s angry. Instead of continuing to spread the holiday cheer that has worked in the past and leaving coal hat has made bad children good, he has resorted to these measures to keep the faith alive. He has given parents a scary story to tell their children in order for them to be good and believe in Santa again. Because lets face, coal in a stocking just isn’t a reason anymore for children to behave.
He’s truly a bully
Santa isn’t always nice, loving, and happy. He has been known to ban other holiday creatures from his territory, picked on Rudolph until he found a use for him, and let’s be honest, he’s a slave owner. Those poor little elves working twenty-four hours a day seven days a week forever is nothing but pure torture. He already has a knack for killing little elves souls, why wouldn’t he make the jump to humans?
All of that holiday cheer just can’t be healthy
I feel as though maybe Santa has had a psychotic break. For hundreds of years, Santa has been full of nothing but happiness, and too much happiness can make someone go crazy. He has to be worried about Christmas and spreading the cheer throughout the entire year. I can barely handle the month of December. I doubt I’d be able to handle it for twelve months out of the year.
In the end, there is proof that Santa isn’t as nice as he claims to be. He has created the Krampus folklore in order to get all of the rage out that he has bottled inside for millennia. I for one, welcome our new Krampus overlord.
Until next time, stay scared!
