In the first half of the program, author and lecturer Jeff Belanger joined host Dave Schrader to discuss the origins of various Christmas traditions, the legend of the "Christmas devil," Krampus, as well as other creatures and dark holiday legends.
During the second half,
author and researcher Laurie Glenn Norris shared details from the story
of eighteen-year-old Esther Cox, who in 1878 moved into a house that
was plagued by unexplained occurrences—something (or someone) knocked on
the walls, moved furniture around, and set fires. Norris examined
whether Cox was the victim of paranormal powers or the troubled mind
behind a series of elaborate hoaxes.
