    Santa Explains (Joe R. Lansdale)While I already expected the outcome of this story, which slightly remembered me of Kealan Patrick Burkes 'Visitation Rights', it was a good opener for this anthology. ****The Endless Black of Friday (Nate Southard)Leaves several questions dangling wide open, but otherwise a charming and enjoyable tale. ****Red Rage (Stephen Mark Rainey)Entertaining, but not remarkable. *** Pointy Canes (Jeff Strand)While I love the strange humor of this author, I could not relate to this story, which was too abstruse and incoherent for my taste, especially at the end. **Naughty (Shane McKenzie)Imho the most gripping story of the collection. *****Krampusnacht in Cell Block J (Cody Goodfellow)I love Krampus stories, this one was ok. ***The Shittiest Guy in the World (John Skipp)Boring. **Belsnickel (J. F. Gonzalez)Great! *****Illustrations (Zach McCain)Each story was introduced with a beautiful illustration, which sometimes revealed its gory details only after your read the accompanying stories. *****
