When you roam the internet every day, as I do, you might discover something interesting once in a while. I just did: I discovered Krampus. For those who don't know it yet, Krampus is an evil counterpart of Santa from Alpine folklore. While Santa brings gifts to good kids on Christmas, Krampus (who looks a bit like devil) punishes the bad. In Germany and Austria, there is a 200-year-old tradition of Krampus Christmas postcards, and some of them are fascinating. Here is one with Krampus reading. I think he is reading a day planner or a diary, perhaps scanning the pages for the names of bad kids.
