What is the significance of A113?

LAST WEEKS: Whatʼs the deal with the Candy Cane?
A: In a small Indiana town, there was a candy maker who wanted to spread the
name of Jesus around the world. He invented the Christmas Candy Cane,
incorporating symbols for the birth, ministry,and death of Jesus Christ. He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy to symbolize the Virgin Birth. The candy maker formed the stick into a “J” to represent the name of Jesus. It can also represent the staff of the “Good Shepherd.” He thought the candy was too plain so he stained it with a red stripe to symbolize the blood shed by Christ on the cross.

STRANGE TOILETS OF THE WORLD

ON THE STREETS OF AMSTERDAM

MOTIVATIONAL POSTER OF THE WEEK
BEAR FLASHBACK


In some European countries, an evil goat-horned spirit is said to accompany
Santa Claus on Christmas day, punishing little children. This demon is called the Krampus, and he haunts the Christmases of children in Austria, southern Germany, Switzerland, and northern Italy. According to the legend, the Krampus would originally ride with St. Nick on his worldwide gift-giving tour. Santa would give children presents…and the Krampus would beat them.

Over the last 200 years, however, the Krampus has developed his own traditions!

These consist mainly of male villagers dressing as the Krampus on what is known as “Krampus Day.” The men then proceed to drink heavily and act menacing, threatening children with a switch.
