Coloring and Christmas. These two things are cornerstones of most of our childhood. What happens when we get older though? What happens to Christmas and coloring then?

Hey that’s just what I was told.Well, good news there is no need to damn innocent angels to hell, you guys! “Creepy Christmas (A Merry Macabre Coloring Book) is here to once again restore balance between light and darkness and coloring and Christmas.
Mister Sam Shearon’s latest book is full of 40 hand-drawn illustrations that span the globe, to bring us the darkest folklore. It isn’t just Krampus you had to be afraid of during Xmas. Who Knew? There are tons of horrifying Christmas folklore in addition to Krampus. Gryla, Santa Claws, Rabid Rudolph and the Windigo, just to name a few.
Each illustration is paired with a story detailing some spooky facts behind a number of insidious Christmas characters. Long before Santa Clause began coming down your fireplace to deliver joy and eat your cookies, things were much darker. Krampus and other characters from folklore were taking bad children into the forrest to never be heard from again. The lore surrounding Christmas has always been darker and richer than the lore surrounding Halloween.
