Gruss vom Krampus Funk :: Digital Illustration

Gruss vom Krampus Funk from your friends at BrianZickafoose.com.

Have you been naughty or nice this year? I’m pretty sure Krampus is going to get a few of you.

[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

This time of year the whole world over, folks gather round with friends and loved ones to reflect on the highlights of year that has passed and the abundance of blessings it has brought. It is a time to be thankful for all the wonderful fruits that the universe has provided for us and to remember those who have been less fortunate.

The essence of the season is more than just the giving of physical gifts, it is the sharing of love, helping others and coming together as a community.

One doesn’t always have to buy things to get in the spirit of giving. Sometimes free stuff is the best. Pass along a smile. Hug someone. Buy a stranger a cup of coffee. Random acts of kindness are really contagious.

Regardless of what religious tradition or spiritual path you may follow, we sincerely hope each every one of you have an amazing, and safe, holiday season.
