The Night Be­fore Kram­pus

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Peter John­son

It’s two days be­fore Christ­mas and a quiet Rhode Is­land town is about to be vis­ited by a num­ber of un­ex­pected guests—in­clud­ing a pair of very dif­fer­ent Kram­puses.

Are they there to pro­tect the in­no­cent, or to ex­act re­venge for a long-for­got­ten tragedy? Some curses fade over time, while oth­ers grow stronger. In this homage to Dick­ens’s A Christ­mas Carol, a young boy named Christoph and his friends must find some way to atone for a wrong com­mit­ted a gen­er­a­tion be­fore they were born.
