The Yule Cat - Iceland:

The Yule Cat is a big and ferocious cat from Iceland. During Christmastime, it eats people who have not received any new clothes to wear before Christmas.

It began as a way to put pressure on farmers and workers to collect wool from sheep and make new warm clothes before winter.

-Adapted from Newsweek

Krampus - Austria, Germany, Hungary:

Bad children in the United States get coal, but other bad children around the world get a visit from Krampus.

This creature shows up in order to punish bad children.

If it discovers a particularly bad child, it puts the kid into a sack and takes it away!

Spooky!

-Adapted from Newsweek

Spider Web Tree - Pavuchky- Ukraine:

Long ago, a poor family was not able to decorate their tree for the holiday.

When they woke up Christmas morning, they found spiders had spun webs around the tree.

Today, Ukrainians still decorate their trees with spider webs for good luck!
