Hey

there,
00:23
Jen.
00:24
Jen,
00:24
how
00:24
are
00:24
you?
00:25
I'm
00:25
actually
00:25
doing
00:26
really
00:26
well.
00:26
How
00:26
about
00:26
you?
00:27
I'm
00:27
doing
00:27
great.
00:28
It's
00:28
Wednesday.
00:29
Yes
00:29
,
00:29
it
00:29
is
00:29
.
00:29  Speaker 1
It
00:29
is.
00:30
And
00:30
it
00:30
feels
00:30
like
00:30
this
00:30
week
00:31
is
00:31
going
00:31
really
00:31
fast
00:32
and
00:32
that
00:33
means
00:33
we
00:33
only
00:33
have
00:33
what,
00:34
two
00:34
and
00:34
a
00:34
half
00:34
more
00:34
weeks
00:35
until
00:35
our
00:35
winter
00:36
break.
00:36
I
00:37
can
00:37
hardly
00:37
wait.
00:38
Yeah.
00:38
What
00:38
are
00:38
you
00:38
going
00:38
to
00:38
do?
00:39
What
00:39
are
00:39
you
00:39
going
00:39
to
00:39
do
00:40
on
00:40
your
00:40
break?
00:40
I
00:41
don't
00:41
have
00:41
any
00:41
plans
00:42
other
00:42
than
00:42
just
00:43
staying
00:43
home
00:44
and
00:45
relaxing
00:45
pretty
00:45
much
00:45
what
00:45
we've
00:46
all
00:46
been
00:46
doing,
00:46
but
00:46
that'll
00:46
be
00:47
really
00:47
nice.
00:48
I
00:48
don't,
00:48
I
00:48
don't
00:48
have
00:49
any
00:49
plans
00:49
either,
00:49
but
00:50
Mardi
00:50
thinking
00:51
about,
00:51
you
00:51
know,
00:51
what
00:51
we'll
00:51
do
00:52
on
00:52
Christmas
00:52
Eve
00:52
and
00:53
Christmas
00:53
day,
00:54
mainly
00:54
thinking
00:55
about
00:55
what
00:55
kind
00:55
of
00:55
food
00:55
I'm
00:56
going
00:56
to
00:56
make.
00:56
I'm
00:56
looking
00:57
forward
00:57
to
00:57
our
00:57
friends,
00:57
giving
00:58
that
00:58
we've
00:58
decided
00:58
we're
00:59
going
00:59
to
00:59
have,
00:59
and
00:59
in
01:00
July,
01:00
that
01:01
will
01:01
be
01:01
amazing.
01:01
Do
01:02
you
01:02
think
01:02
we'll
01:02
be
01:02
able
01:02
to
01:02
get
01:02
together
01:03
by
01:03
then?
01:03
I
01:04
think
01:04
so.
01:04
Yeah.
01:05
We're
01:05
hopefully
01:05
going
01:05
to
01:05
be
01:05
vaccinated
01:06
by
01:06
then.
01:07
So
01:07
it's
01:07
going
01:07
to
01:07
feel
01:08
so
01:08
good
01:08
to
01:09
like,
01:09
just
01:09
all
01:09
be
01:10
together.
01:10
Like
01:10
to
01:10
have
01:11
friends
01:11
in
01:11
the
01:11
house
01:12
again
01:12
will
01:12
just
01:12
be
01:13
the
01:13
best
01:13
feeling.
01:14
Um,
01:14
December
01:15
is
01:15
a
01:15
good
01:15
month.
01:15
I
01:16
just
01:16
wish
01:16
we
01:16
would
01:16
get
01:16
some
01:16
snow.
01:17
I
01:17
would
01:18
love
01:18
a
01:18
good
01:18
three
01:18
feet
01:19
of
01:19
snow,
01:19
but
01:19
speaking
01:20
of
01:20
snow
01:20
and
01:20
a
01:21
movie
01:21
,
01:21
um,
01:21
I
01:22
watched
01:22
Krampus
01:23
for
01:23
the
01:23
second
01:23
time
01:23
this
01:23
weekend
01:24
and
01:25
I
01:25
love
01:26
the
01:26
snow
01:26
in
01:26
that
01:26
movie.
01:27
I
01:27
mean,
01:27
it's,
01:27
it's
01:27
the
01:27
other
01:28
kind
01:28
of
01:28
thing
01:28
where
01:28
it's
01:28
almost
01:29
suffocating
01:30
the
01:30
whole
01:30
neighborhood.
01:31
There's
01:31
so
01:31
much
01:31
snow
01:32
and
01:32
it's
01:32
so
01:32
wintry,
01:32
but
01:33
it
01:33
looks
01:33
like
01:33
heaven
01:34
to
01:34
me.
01:34
I
01:35
watched
01:35
the
01:35
two
01:35
last
01:35
weekend.
01:36
Did
01:36
you?
01:37
I
01:37
watched
01:37
the
01:37
woman's
01:38
Toni
01:38
Collette
01:38
and
01:40
that's
01:40
the
01:40
one
01:40
I
01:40
watched
01:41
and
01:41
the
01:41
guy
01:41
who
01:41
was
01:41
from
01:41
parks
01:42
and
01:42
rec
01:42
who
01:43
played
01:43
Ben?
01:43
Yeah,
01:44
I
01:44
liked
01:45
him.
01:45
I
01:45
think
01:45
he's
01:45
really
01:46
cute.
01:46
I'm
01:47
excited
01:47
because
01:47
we
01:48
are
01:48
getting
01:48
our
01:48
Christmas
01:48
tree
01:49
tomorrow
01:49
night.
01:49
I
01:50
can't
01:50
wait.
01:50
You're
01:51
getting
01:51
a
01:51
fresh
01:51
one,
01:51
right?
01:52
We
01:52
are.
01:53
We
01:53
are.
01:54
Um,
01:54
I
01:54
know
01:54
you
01:55
think
01:55
that
01:55
I
01:55
should
01:56
take
01:56
my
01:56
husband
01:56
to
01:56
a
01:56
place
01:57
where
01:57
he
01:57
can
01:57
chop
01:57
it
01:57
down
01:58
and
01:58
feel
01:58
really
01:59
mad
01:59
,
02:00  Speaker 2
But
02:00
I
02:00
don't,
02:00
I
02:01
don't
02:01
know
02:01
where
02:01
that
02:01
is
02:01  Speaker 1
Around
02:02
here.
02:02
So
02:02
we're
02:02
just
02:02
going
02:02
to
02:03
go
02:03
where
02:03
we
02:03
always
02:03
go
02:03
to
02:04
this
02:04
nursery
02:04
that
02:04
has,
02:05
you
02:05
know,
02:05
they
02:05
have
02:06
really
02:06
nice
02:06
trees
02:06
and
02:06
they're
02:06
really
02:07
nice
02:07
there.
02:07
And
02:07
,
02:08
um,
02:08
so
02:08
we're
02:09
going
02:09
to
02:09
pick
02:09
it
02:09
out
02:09
and
02:09
I
02:09
think
02:10
we're
02:10
going
02:10
early
02:10
enough
02:11
that
02:11
we
02:11
will
02:11
have
02:11
a
02:11
really
02:12
good
02:12
selection.
02:12
So
02:13
I
02:13
want
02:13
to
02:13
get
02:13
a
02:14
really
02:14
big
02:14
one
02:14
this
02:15
year,
02:15
just
02:15
because
02:15
everything
02:16
else
02:16
sucks
02:17
when
02:17
as
02:17
we'll
02:17
have
02:17
like
02:17
this
02:18
big
02:18
gorgeous
02:18
tree.
02:19
So
02:20
I
02:20
guess
02:20
we
02:20
should
02:20
talk
02:20
about
02:21
what
02:21
we're
02:21
drinking.
02:21
And
02:21
I
02:21
have
02:22
to
02:22
say,
02:22
I
02:22
have
02:22
like
02:22
,
02:22
literally
02:23
have
02:23
like
02:23
one
02:23
sip
02:24
left
02:24
in
02:24
my
02:24
glass.
02:25
It's
02:25
really
02:25
sad.
02:26
Um
02:26
,
02:26
because
02:26
it's
02:26
maybe
02:27
the
02:27
best
02:28
drink
02:28
that
02:29
I've
02:29
made
02:29
in
02:29
a
02:29
long
02:29
time.
02:30
Can
02:30
I
02:30
tell
02:30
you
02:30
what
02:30
it
02:31
is
02:31
please?
02:31
So
02:32
it's
02:32
a
02:32
peppermint
02:33
Patty,
02:33
which
02:34
is
02:34
one
02:34
of
02:34
my
02:34
favorite
02:35
candies,
02:35
by
02:35
the
02:35
way.
02:36
I
02:36
love
02:36
do
02:36
you,
02:37
you
02:37
don't
02:37
like
02:37
mint.
02:37
I
02:37
don't
02:38
think
02:38
I
02:38
would
02:38
like
02:38
it
02:39
in
02:39
a
02:39
drink.
02:39
Well,
02:40
I
02:40
never
02:40
thought
02:41
I
02:41
was
02:41
a
02:41
fan
02:41
of
02:41
sweet
02:42
desserty
02:42
drinks,
02:43
but
02:43
so
02:43
this
02:43
is
02:43
a
02:43
peppermint
02:44
Patty
02:44
martini,
02:45
and
02:45
it
02:45
has
02:45
equal
02:46
parts
02:46
of
02:47
Godiva,
02:47
chocolate
02:48
liquor
02:48
,
02:49
some
02:49
creme
02:49
de
02:49
mint.
02:50
And
02:50
then
02:50
the
02:51
other
02:51
part
02:51
that
02:51
you
02:51
put
02:52
in
02:52
is
02:52
half
02:52
and
02:52
half
02:53
so
02:53
equal
02:53
parts
02:54
of
02:54
that,
02:54
shake
02:54
it
02:55
with
02:55
ice
02:55
and
02:55
a
02:55
cocktail
02:56
strainer
02:56
and
02:56
just
02:56
pour
02:57
it
02:57
into
02:57
your
02:57
glass.
02:57
And
02:58
I
02:58
garnished
02:58
it
02:59
a
02:59
little
02:59
tiny
03:00
wedge
03:00
of
03:00
peppermint
03:01
patties
03:01
.
03:01  Speaker 3
It
03:01
was
03:01
so
03:02
it's
03:02
so
03:02
delicious
03:03
and
03:03
it's
03:03
super
03:04
Christmas-y
03:04
.
03:04
What
03:04
was
03:04
the
03:04
first
03:05
ingredient?
03:06  Speaker 1
Um
03:06
,
03:06
the
03:06
Godiva
03:06
liqour
03:07
the
03:07
chocolate
03:08
liquor
03:08
.
03:08
Um
03:08
,
03:08
it's
03:08
really,
03:09
really
03:09
good.
03:10
I
03:10
think
03:10
you
03:11
could
03:11
really
03:11
get
03:11
drunk
03:11
on
03:11
these
03:12
without
03:12
realizing
03:13
what
03:13
you
03:13
were
03:13
doing
03:14  Speaker 3
After
03:14
your,
03:15
your,
03:15
you
03:15
had
03:16
several
03:16
undrinkable
03:17
drinks,
03:17
right?
03:18
Or
03:18
a
03:18
couple
03:18
undrinkable
03:19
drinks.
03:19
I
03:20
E
03:20
yeah,
03:20
I
03:20
had
03:20
one
03:21
that
03:21
was
03:21
just
03:21
awful.
03:22
It
03:22
was,
03:23  Speaker 1
I
03:23
hate
03:23
a
03:23
lot
03:23
of
03:23
money.
03:23
Like
03:23
I
03:23
spent
03:24
$75
03:25
at
03:25
the
03:25
liquor
03:25
store
03:25
for
03:25
the
03:26
ingredients
03:26
and
03:27
I
03:27
make
03:27
it
03:27
and
03:28
I
03:28
can't
03:28
even
03:28
drink
03:28
it.
03:29
Yeah
03:29
.
03:29  Speaker 3
The
03:29
worst
03:30
drink
03:30
that
03:30
I
03:30
made
03:30
was
03:31
unfortunately,
03:32
it's
03:32
my
03:32
favorite
03:33
drink
03:33
right
03:33
up
03:33
there
03:34
with
03:34
a
03:34
French
03:35
75.
03:36
I
03:36
love
03:36
my
03:36
ties.
03:37
You
03:37
do
03:38
love
03:38
though
03:38
.
03:38
When
03:38
I
03:38
made
03:39
it,
03:39
the
03:39
ingredients
03:40
started
03:40
to
03:40
separate
03:41
from
03:41
each
03:42
other.
03:42
Wasn't
03:42
it
03:42
kind
03:43
of
03:43
like
03:43
a
03:43
brownish
03:43
color
03:44
too
03:44
.
03:45
I
03:45
am.
03:47
I
03:47
had
03:48
to
03:48
write
03:48
down
03:48
my
03:48
ingredients
03:49
because
03:49
there
03:49
were
03:49
so
03:50
many
03:51
because
03:51
you're
03:52
drunk
03:52
because
03:52
I'm
03:52
drunk.
03:53
I
03:53
told
03:53
you,
03:53
you're
03:53  Speaker 1
The
03:54
queen
03:54
of
03:54
making
03:54
drinks
03:55
with
03:55
tons
03:55
of
03:56
ingredients
03:56
.
03:56  Speaker 3
This
03:56
has
03:56
a
03:56
ton
03:57
in
03:57
it.
03:57
And
03:57
I
03:57
haven't
03:58
had
03:58
one
03:59
in
03:59
a
03:59
long
03:59
time.
03:59
This
03:59
is
04:00
the
04:00
most
04:00
ingredients.
04:00
I
04:00
think
04:01
I've
04:01
made
04:02
a
04:02
drink
04:02
with,
04:03
well
04:03
,
04:03
what
04:03
is
04:03
it?
04:03
So
04:04
I'm
04:04
having
04:05
a
04:05
zombie.
04:07
It
04:07
has
04:07
light
04:07
rum,
04:08
dark
04:08
rum,
04:09
orange
04:09
carousel,
04:10
OJ,
04:11
passion,
04:12
fruit.
04:13
It
04:13
has
04:13
lemon
04:14
Grenadines
04:15
and
04:15
bitters.
04:16
Oh
04:16
my
04:16
God.
04:17  Speaker 1
That
04:17
is
04:17
a
04:17
lot
04:17
of
04:18
ingredients
04:18
.
04:18
Now,
04:18
when
04:18
you
04:19
say
04:19
passion,
04:19
fruit,
04:19
do
04:19
you
04:19
mean
04:20
juice
04:20
or
04:20
like
04:20
liqour
04:21  Speaker 3
Ideally
04:22
you
04:22
would
04:22
make
04:22
your
04:23
own
04:23
passion
04:24
fruit
04:24
puree,
04:25
but
04:25
since,
04:25
I
04:26
don't
04:26
know,
04:26
but
04:26
where
04:27
the
04:27
hell
04:27
do
04:27
you
04:27
buy
04:27
a
04:27
passion?
04:28
Per
04:28
se
04:28
?
04:28
Since
04:28
I
04:29
don't
04:29
know
04:29
where
04:29
the
04:29
to
04:29
get
04:30
passion
04:30
fruit,
04:31
I
04:32
don't
04:32
order
04:33
it
04:33
through
04:33
Amazon.
04:34
It's
04:34
infused
04:35
with
04:35
passion
04:36
fruit,
04:36
but
04:36
it's
04:36
basically
04:37
sugar.
04:37
It's
04:37
really
04:38
just
04:38
sugar.
04:39
Is
04:39
this
04:39
glossiness.
04:40
It
04:40
might've
04:40
been
04:41
responsible
04:41
for
04:41
the
04:41
terrible
04:42
by
04:42
Thai
04:42
,
04:42
but
04:43
Oh,
04:43
and
04:44
then
04:44
also
04:45
I
04:45
forgot
04:45
you
04:45
can
04:45
float
04:46
one
04:46
51
04:47
on
04:47
top
04:47
of
04:47
it,
04:48
which
04:48
I
04:48
tried.
04:49
No
04:49
.
04:49
What
04:49
does
04:49
that
04:49
does
04:49
that
04:50
vodka?
04:51
It's
04:51
either
04:51
one
04:51
50
04:52
or
04:52
one
04:52
51
04:53
again,
04:53
excuse
04:54
me.
04:54
Cause
04:55
I've
04:55
I
04:55
finished
04:55
him
04:55
as
04:56
his
04:56
guns
04:56
draws
04:56
.
04:56
I'm
04:56
drunk.
04:57
It's
04:57
a
04:57
high
04:58
proof
04:58
rum.
04:59
Oh.
05:00  Speaker 1
And
05:00
it
05:00
floats
05:00
on
05:00
top.
05:01
How
05:01
interesting.
05:02  Speaker 3
Ideally
05:03
it
05:03
floats
05:04
on
05:04
top,
05:04
but
05:05
mine
05:05
kind
05:05
of
05:05
partially
05:06
on
05:07
top
05:08
of
05:08
a
05:08
flop,
05:09
but
05:11
I
05:11
tried,
05:11
you
05:12
should
05:12
try
05:12
to
05:12
light
05:12
it
05:12
on
05:12
fire
05:13
and
05:13
see
05:13
what,
05:14
how
05:14
I
05:14
didn't
05:14
even
05:14
think
05:14
about
05:15
that.
05:15
I'm
05:15
going
05:15
to
05:15
try
05:15
that.
05:16  Speaker 1
Well,
05:16
don't
05:17
really
05:17
know.
05:17
Don't
05:18
really
05:18
do
05:18
,
05:18
I'm
05:18
do
05:19
it
05:19
tonight
05:19
.
05:19
I
05:19
was
05:20
not
05:20
serious.
05:21  Speaker 3
I
05:21
told
05:21
you,
05:21
I
05:22
said
05:22
no
05:22
.
05:23  Speaker 1
If
05:23
you
05:23
do,
05:23
you
05:23
need
05:24
to
05:24
get
05:24
the
05:24
fire
05:24
extinguisher
05:25
handy.
05:26  Speaker 3
For
05:26
sure.
05:26
I
05:26
hadn't
05:27
eaten
05:27
dinner
05:28
tonight.
05:28
So
05:28
I
05:28
had
05:29
to
05:29
eat
05:29
some
05:29
crackers.
05:31
It's
05:31
not
05:31
serving
05:31
me.
05:32
Well,
05:32
let's
05:33
put
05:33
it
05:33
that
05:33
way.
05:34
You
05:34
need
05:34
to
05:34
eat
05:34
something
05:35
to
05:35
eat
05:36
something.
05:36
I
05:36
have,
05:37
have
05:37
maybe
05:37
a
05:37
quarter
05:38
of
05:38
my
05:38
drink
05:38
left,
05:39
but
05:39
it's
05:39
diligent
05:39
.
05:39
I
05:39
don't
05:39
have
05:40
any,
05:40
and
05:40
I'm.
05:41

05:42

it.
05:43
Your

05:44
yelled
05:44
for
05:44
him
05:45
and
05:45
he's
05:45
he
05:45
didn't
05:46
answer.
05:46
I
05:46
think
05:47
he
05:47
went
05:47
on
05:47
a
05:47
wonder.
05:47
Why
05:48
upstairs
05:50
answering
05:50

05:54  Speaker 1
Yeah

05:54
So
05:54

05:54

05:54
had
05:55

05:56
I've
05:56
I've
05:56
had,
05:57
you're
05:57
still
05:57
working
05:58
on
05:58
the
05:58
rest
05:59
of
05:59
your,
05:59
so
05:59
do
05:59
you
05:59
want
05:59

05:59
jump
06:00

06:02

06:02

06:02
is
06:03
our
06:03
holiday
06:03
episode.

both
06:05
kind
06:06
of

,
06:07
who's
06:07
starting.
06:07

much
06:11
to
06:11  Speaker 1
Drink?
06:12
Oh
06:12
,
06:14
I
06:14
thought
06:14
that
06:15
went
06:15
right
06:15
over
06:15
my
06:15
head.
06:16
All
06:16
right
06:16
.
06:17
So
06:17
tonight
06:17
we're
06:17
going
06:18
to
06:18
be
06:18
talking
06:18
about
06:19
some
06:19
Yuletide
06:20
monsters
06:21
and
06:21
I'm
06:22
going
06:22
to
06:22
start
06:22
out
06:22
talking
06:23
about
06:23
Krampus.
06:24
The
06:24
history
06:25
of
06:25
Krampus
06:25
is
06:25
really
06:25
hard
06:26
to
06:26
pin
06:26
down
06:26
like
06:26
his
06:27
origins.
06:28
I
06:28
just
06:28
wanted
06:28
to
06:29
throw
06:29
out
06:29
there
06:29
though.
06:29
My
06:29
husband
06:30
had
06:30
started
06:30
calling
06:30
me
06:31
Krampus,
06:31
like
06:31
around
06:32
my
06:32
peak
06:32
,
06:33
because
06:33
I'm
06:34
a
06:34
real,
06:34
like,
06:34
I'm
06:34
a
06:34
real
06:35
joy
06:35
to
06:35
live
06:35
with
06:36
and
06:36
I'm
06:36
a
06:37
monster
06:37
as
06:37
well.
06:37
We
06:37
haven't
06:38
been
06:38
cramped
06:38
as
06:38
he's
06:39
really,
06:39
he's
06:40
really
06:40
scary.
06:40
Yeah
06:40
.
06:41  Speaker 3
He
06:41
is
06:41
really
06:41
scary.
06:42
And
06:42
also
06:42
wanted
06:42
to
06:42
mention
06:43
too.
06:43
We're
06:43
going
06:43
to
06:43
end
06:43
on
06:44
a
06:44
good
06:44
note
06:44
with
06:45  Speaker 1
Nicola
06:45
.
06:45
So
06:46
yes,
06:46
and
06:46
I
06:46
don't
06:47
think
06:47
Krampus
06:47
is
06:47
all
06:48
bad.
06:49
I
06:49
mean,
06:49
I
06:50
hate
06:50
children
06:52
Krampus.
06:52
Isn't
06:52
the
06:52
nicest
06:53
to
06:53
kids.
06:54
So
06:54
I
06:54
,
06:54
I
06:54
feel
06:54
like
06:54
Krampus
06:55
and
06:55
I
06:55
are
06:55
on
06:55
a
06:55
good
06:55
understanding.
06:56
So
06:56
a
06:56
lot
06:57
of
06:57
what
06:57
I'm
06:57
going
06:57
to
06:57
be
06:57
talking
06:58
about
06:58
tonight
06:58
is
06:58
from
06:59
a
06:59
book
06:59
that
06:59
I
06:59
found
07:00
called
07:00
Krampus.
07:01
It's
07:01
got
07:01
the
07:01
longest
07:02
title
07:02
Krampus
07:02
in
07:02
the
07:02
history
07:03
and
07:03
lore
07:03
of
07:03
the
07:04
mythological
07:04
figure
07:05
who
07:05
punishes
07:05
children
07:06
during
07:06
the
07:06
Christmas
07:07
season
07:08
is
07:08
not
07:08
the
07:08
craziest
07:09
title
07:09
it
07:09
is.
07:10
And
07:10
it
07:10
doesn't
07:10
have
07:11
an
07:11
author.
07:11
It
07:11
says
07:11
it's
07:11
by
07:12
Charles
07:12
river
07:13
editors
07:13
.
07:13
It
07:13
was,
07:13
it
07:14
was
07:14
one
07:14
of
07:14
those
07:14
books
07:14
that
07:14
like,
07:15
they
07:15
print
07:15
it
07:15
after
07:15
you
07:15
buy
07:16
it.
07:16
Have
07:16
you
07:16
ever
07:16
gotten
07:16
a
07:17
book
07:17
like
07:17
that?
07:17
Like
07:17
it's
07:18
only
07:18
printed
07:18
onto
07:19
me.
07:20
And
07:20
so
07:20
it'll
07:20
have
07:20
the
07:21
date
07:22
as
07:22
like
07:23
the
07:23
copyright
07:24
date
07:24
or
07:24
the
07:24
printing
07:24
date
07:25
in
07:25
it.
07:25
So
07:25
I
07:26
don't
07:26
think
07:26
it's
07:26
on
07:26
the
07:26
bestseller
07:27
list,
07:27
but
07:27
it
07:27
was
07:28
very
07:28
informative.
07:29
I
07:29
have
07:29
to
07:29
say,
07:29
I
07:30
learned
07:30
a
07:30
lot
07:30
about
07:30
Krampus
07:31
in
07:31
it.
07:31
Krampus.
07:32
He's
07:32
also
07:32
referred
07:33
to
07:33
as
07:33
the
07:33
Christmas
07:33
devil
07:34
or
07:34
the
07:34
demon
07:35
anti
07:36
Santa
07:36
,
07:36
his
07:36
origins
07:37
are
07:37
hard
07:37
to
07:37
determine,
07:38
but
07:38
he
07:38
definitely
07:39
comes
07:39
from
07:39
Europe
07:39
and
07:40
probably
07:40
central
07:40
Europe,
07:41
especially
07:41
the
07:41
mountainous
07:42
regions
07:42
where
07:43
the
07:43
name
07:44
originates.
07:45
It
07:45
could
07:45
be
07:45
from
07:45
the
07:46
middle
07:46
German
07:46
word
07:47
Corolla
07:47
,
07:47
which
07:48
is
07:48
meaning
07:48
it
07:49
means
07:49
claw
07:49
or
07:50
in
07:50
this
07:50
sounds
07:50
a
07:50
bit
07:51
more
07:51
likely
07:51
to
07:51
me,
07:51
it
07:52
could
07:52
be
07:52
from
07:52
a
07:52
word
07:53
called
07:53
crampin,
07:54
which
07:54
is
07:54
a
07:54
Bavarian
07:55
word.
07:55
That
07:55
means
07:56
something
07:56
that's
07:56
withered
07:57
or
07:57
lifeless.
07:57
So
07:58
something,
07:58
something
07:59
dead.
08:00
So
08:00
I
08:00
thought
08:00
that
08:00
was
08:00
cool.
08:01
Krampus
08:02
might
08:02
be
08:02
a
08:02
bastardization
08:03
of
08:04
the
08:04
Norse
08:04
goddess
08:05
hella
08:05
.
08:05
She
08:05
also
08:06
goes
08:06
by
08:06
hell,
08:06
but
08:06
I'm
08:06
just
08:07
going
08:07
to
08:07
call
08:07
her
08:07
hella
08:07
.
08:07
And
08:08
she's
08:08
the
08:08
Norse
08:08
goddess
08:09
of
08:09
death.
08:09
And
08:10
she's
08:10
supposed
08:10
to
08:10
be
08:10
the
08:11
youngest
08:11
child
08:12
of
08:12
Loki
08:12
.
08:12
Who's
08:12
the
08:13
God
08:13
of
08:13
mischief
08:14
and
08:14
fire.
08:14
And
08:14
she's
08:15
an
08:15
interesting
08:15
goddess
08:16
because
08:16
she
08:16
has
08:17
she's
08:17
Chris
08:17
split
08:18
in
08:18
some
08:18
accounts,
08:18
she
08:19
split
08:19
down
08:19
the
08:19
middle
08:20
in
08:20
another's
08:20
like
08:21
she
08:21
split
08:21
from
08:22
top
08:22
to
08:22
bottom.
08:22
And
08:23
when
08:23
I
08:23
say
08:23
split,
08:23
I
08:23
mean
08:24
that
08:24
like
08:24
her
08:24
upper
08:25
appearance
08:25
is
08:26
really
08:26
beautiful.
08:27
And
08:27
then
08:27
her
08:27
lower
08:27
half
08:28
is
08:28
disfigured.
08:29
Oh
08:29
,
08:29
I
08:29
thought
08:29
you
08:30
meant
08:30
like
08:30
,
08:30
like
08:30
she's
08:30
not
08:31
in
08:31
two
08:31
pieces,
08:31
but
08:32
it's
08:32
just
08:32
the
08:32
two,
08:33
the
08:33
two
08:33
sections
08:34
of
08:34
her
08:34
appear
08:35
very
08:35
differently.
08:36
The
08:36
upper
08:36
half
08:37
is
08:37
apparently
08:38
beautiful.
08:38
Like
08:39
she
08:39
looks
08:39
like
08:39
a
08:39
young
08:39
maiden
08:40
has
08:40
flowing
08:41
blonde
08:41
hair
08:42
really
08:42
gorgeous,
08:43
but
08:43
her
08:43
lower
08:43
half,
08:44
not
08:44
so
08:44
hot.
08:45
So
08:45
she
08:46
,
08:46
um,
08:46
she
08:47
has
08:47
rotting
08:47
legs
08:48
and
08:48
they're
08:48
decaying
08:49
and
08:49
like
08:49
worms
08:50
are
08:50
crawling
08:50
in
08:50
and
08:51
out
08:51
of
08:51
them.
08:51
So
08:52
pretty
08:52
gross,
08:53
like
08:53
around
08:53
what
08:54
time
08:54
period
08:54
was,
08:55
I
08:55
mean,
08:55
this
08:55
is
08:55
from
08:56
Norse
08:56
mythology.
08:57
So
08:57
that's,
08:58
pre-Christian
08:58
I'm
08:58
sure.
08:59
So
09:00
hella
09:00
is
09:00
said
09:00
to
09:00
have
09:00
been
09:01
disfigured
09:01
by
09:01
her
09:01
father
09:02
and
09:03
how
09:03
that
09:03
happened
09:04
is
09:04
that
09:04
she
09:04
was
09:04
part
09:05
of
09:05
this
09:05
awful
09:05
ritual.
09:06
And
09:06
I
09:06
don't
09:06
know
09:07
what
09:07
he
09:07
was
09:07
trying
09:07
to
09:07
do,
09:08
like
09:08
what
09:09
he
09:09
was
09:09
trying
09:09
to
09:09
summon
09:09
up
09:09
or
09:10
what
09:10
he
09:10
was
09:10
trying
09:10
to
09:10
do
09:10
with
09:10
this
09:11
ritual.
09:11
But
09:11
he
09:11
took
09:12
her
09:12
any
09:12
bound
09:12
her
09:12
by
09:13
her
09:13
limbs
09:13
and
09:14
half
09:14
submerged
09:15
her
09:15
in
09:15
the
09:15
water
09:15
and
09:15
just
09:16
left
09:16
her
09:16
there
09:16
for
09:16
days.
09:17
God,
09:18
when
09:18
low-key
09:18
comes
09:18
back
09:19
to
09:19
get
09:19
her,
09:20
she's
09:20
basically
09:21
at
09:21
the
09:21
edge
09:21
of
09:21
death.
09:22
So
09:22
he
09:22
gives
09:23
her
09:23
this
09:23
heat,
09:23
tilt
09:24
her
09:24
head
09:24
back
09:24
and
09:24
he
09:25
administers
09:25
this
09:25
potion
09:26
that
09:26
revives
09:27
her.
09:27
So
09:27
she's
09:28
among
09:28
the
09:28
living,
09:28
but
09:29
there's
09:29
part
09:29
of
09:29
her
09:30
that's
09:30
forever.
09:30
Like
09:30
her
09:31
lower
09:31
half
09:31
is
09:31
completely
09:32
atrophied
09:32
and
09:33
Rodan
09:33
.
09:33
And
09:34
so
09:34
she
09:34
becomes
09:34
kind
09:35
of
09:35
this,
09:35
this
09:35
liminal
09:36
figure,
09:36
this
09:37
goddess
09:37
of
09:37
the
09:37
underworld
09:38
and
09:38
she's
09:38
the
09:38
queen
09:39
of
09:39
hell
09:39
Haim
09:39
,
09:40
which
09:40
is
09:40
the
09:40
North
09:40
realm
09:41
of
09:41
the
09:41
dead.
09:41
And
09:42
it
09:42
was
09:42
said
09:42
that
09:42
she
09:42
loved
09:43
to
09:43
eat
09:44
the
09:44
souls
09:44
of
09:44
those
09:45
people
09:45
who
09:45
are
09:45
bad
09:46
or
09:46
wicked.
09:46
When
09:47
you
09:47
say
09:47
Norse
09:48
mythology,
09:50
Norse
09:50
,
09:50
meaning
09:50
from
09:50
like
09:51
Norway
09:51
and
09:52
the
09:52
Scandinavian
09:52
countries.
09:53
And
09:53
a
09:53
lot
09:54
of
09:54
this
09:54
I'm
09:54
I
09:54
know
09:54
you're
09:55
such,
09:55
you're
09:55
so
09:56
enamored
09:56
of
09:56
Iceland
09:56
and
09:57
really
09:57
want
09:57
to
09:57
go
09:57
there.
09:57
A
09:57
lot
09:57
of
09:57
this
09:58
mythology
09:59
is
09:59
a
09:59
lot
10:00
of
10:00
Norris
10:00
mythology.
10:01
I
10:01
don't
10:01
know,
10:01
probably
10:02
because
10:02
people
10:03
from
10:03
Norway
10:04
and
10:04
the
10:04
Scandinavian
10:04
countries
10:05
went
10:05
over
10:05
and
10:05
settled
10:06
Iceland.
10:07
I
10:07
think
10:07
I
10:07
don't
10:08
my
10:08
history.
10:09
There
10:09
is
10:09
not
10:09
the
10:09
greatest.
10:10
You'll
10:10
see
10:10
a
10:10
lot
10:11
of
10:11
like
10:11
Norwegian
10:11
legends
10:12
or
10:12
I'm
10:12
sorry,
10:13
Norse
10:13
legends
10:13
in
10:14
,
10:14
um,
10:14
in
10:14
Iceland
10:15
to
10:15
the
10:15
reason
10:16
I
10:16
tell
10:16
you
10:16
about
10:17
hella
10:17
is
10:17
because
10:17
some
10:17
origin
10:18
stories
10:19
suggest
10:19
that
10:20
Krampus
10:20
is
10:20
the
10:20
son
10:20
of
10:21
Hela
10:21
.
10:21
And
10:21
then
10:21
I
10:22
did
10:22
read
10:22
somewhere
10:23
that
10:23
there
10:23
was
10:23
another
10:24
,
10:24
um,
10:25
belief
10:25
that
10:25
maybe
10:25
he
10:26
is
10:26
her
10:26
romantic
10:27
concert
10:27
.
10:28
So
10:28
maybe
10:28
he's
10:28
like
10:28
her
10:29
boyfriend
10:29
or
10:29
something.
10:30
He's
10:30
the
10:30
person
10:31
who
10:31
brings
10:31
her
10:31
drinks.
10:32
So
10:33
one
10:33
night,
10:33
each
10:33
year,
10:34
according
10:34
to
10:34
this
10:34
mythology
10:35
on
10:35
the
10:35
coldest
10:36
winter
10:36
day,
10:37
Krampus
10:37
was
10:37
allowed
10:38
to
10:38
leave
10:38
the
10:39
underworld
10:39
of
10:39
eternal
10:40
cold
10:40
darkness
10:41
and
10:41
mist
10:41
.
10:42
And
10:42
he
10:42
would
10:42
leave
10:42
the
10:42
underworld
10:43
to
10:43
come
10:43
up
10:43
to
10:43
earth
10:44
and
10:44
search
10:44
for
10:44
wicked
10:45
children.
10:45
You
10:46
know,
10:46
I
10:46
was
10:46
thinking
10:46
about
10:46
that
10:47
and
10:47
it
10:47
kind
10:47
of
10:47
parallels
10:48
Santa
10:48
who
10:49
wants
10:49  Speaker 4
Might
10:49
a
10:49
year,
10:49
right.
10:50
You
10:50
know,
10:50
one
10:50
night
10:51
a
10:51
year,
10:51
usually.
10:52
Yeah
10:52
.
10:52  Speaker 1
Cold
10:52
night
10:52
it's
10:53
December.
10:54
Although
10:54
he
10:54
goes
10:54
all
10:54
over
10:54
the
10:54
world.
10:55
So
10:55
I
10:55
guess
10:55
some
10:55
places
10:56
are
10:56
hot
10:56
,
10:56
but
10:56
Santa
10:56
leaves
10:57
his
10:57
realm
10:57
of
10:57
the
10:57
North
10:58
pole
10:58
to
10:58
deliver
10:59
gifts.
10:59
But
10:59
two
10:59
good
10:59
kids,
11:00
you
11:00
can
11:00
already
11:01
start
11:01
to
11:01
see
11:01
how
11:01
Santa
11:02
is
11:02
kind
11:02
of
11:02
like
11:02
the
11:02
other
11:03
side.
11:03
So
11:04
the
11:04
other
11:04
person
11:04
that
11:04
I
11:04
want
11:05
to
11:05
talk
11:05
about
11:05
in
11:05
relation
11:06
to
11:06
Krampus
11:06
is
11:06
somebody
11:07
called
11:08
[inaudible]
11:08
and
11:09
I
11:09
hope
11:09
I'm
11:09
pronouncing
11:09
that
11:10
correctly.
11:10
It
11:10
may
11:10
be
11:11
perked
11:11
up,
11:11
but
11:11
I'm
11:11
going
11:11
to
11:11
call
11:12
her
11:12
purse.
11:14
We
11:14
hear
11:14
drumming
11:14
.
11:14
So
11:14
you
11:14
don't
11:14
care.
11:15
So
11:17
some
11:17
of
11:17
what
11:17
I
11:17
read
11:17
said
11:17
that
11:18
she,
11:18
that
11:18
Krampus
11:18
might
11:19
be
11:19
a
11:19
descendant
11:19
of
11:19
her
11:20
and
11:20
she
11:21
was
11:21
a
11:21
shapeshifter
11:22
and
11:22
she
11:22
had
11:23
two
11:23
forms.
11:23
And
11:24
this
11:24
is
11:24
,
11:24
this
11:24
is
11:24
kind
11:24
of
11:25
like
11:25
,
11:25
um,
11:25
frown,
11:26
frown,
11:26
something,
11:27
no
11:28
hella
11:28
.
11:28
So
11:29
th
11:29
what
11:29
I'm
11:29
about
11:29
to
11:29
tell
11:30
you
11:30
about
11:30
for
11:30
our
11:30
purchase
11:31
sounds
11:31
a
11:31
lot
11:31
like
11:31
hella.
11:32
So
11:32
she
11:32
had
11:32
two
11:32
forms
11:33
and
11:33
one
11:33
of
11:33
them
11:34
was
11:34
a
11:34
lovely
11:35
maiden
11:35
.
11:36
And
11:36
then
11:36
the
11:36
other
11:36
one
11:36
was
11:37
a
11:37
hideous
11:37
crone
