Mice are nice, Krampus is coming and a little Baileys for everyone

  If you've read this blog for a while, you know that I am not a very Christmases sort and MUCH prefer the glorious thrills of Hallowe'en.  In fact, I rarely purchase anything new for Christmas decorating (to save space and money for skulls and severed fingers, of course!) but this year there was a notable exception:  mice!!  I spotted these ADORABLE mice during Elora's Starlight shopping event at pod (75 Metcalfe Street) which always has unusual things on offer.  
  Mice enjoy a little Christmas cheer so they appreciate this mouse-sized Baileys... and behind them?  Why, that's a framed postage stamp featuring Krampus. (Thank you again Rose!)  Krampusnacht is December 5th so you'd better watch out if you've been naughty!  

On our door we have some switches for Krampus... they're supposed to be birch but I think he'll be okay with our willow.  Apparently, one Krampus custom is to display the switches all year, to remind children that Krampus will return!  Love it!
