Mirage: Speculating on Speculative fiction #15 Spooky Xmas creature fun W/ Varla Ventura

In this episode, Varla Ventura and I speculate on spooky Christmas traditions, from elf on the shelf (he is always watching,) to pickle in the tree, the true history of Santa, Krampus, the goat-headed god and Bafana the Italian Christmas witch.
